Happy New Year to you all and thank you for your support. Here’s to a happy, safe and healthy new year.
I have just been having a look back at the last few months of 2021 and it was so busy!
Walking and photographing gave me great inspiration for a collection of artworks, looking at the coastal paths to the end of summer colours.
One of my favourite artworks was my ‘Autumn fish swirl…
This artwork was finished off with copper/gold leaf fish detail which catches the sunlight or lighting in your home.
With Christmas approaching I put together a collection of limited ‘snowy’ prints depicting my artworks of ‘The Storm Tower’ in Bude and Cornwall’s ‘Snowy weathered Trees’.
On this large canvas I experimented with a new way to create the fish and the swirl and I think it worked out really well! Instead of painting individual fish I used the brush strokes of the background to shade around and create fish shapes, swirl and depth.
I was asked to paint an exciting mural piece at the beautiful Roots Lounge Vegan Cafe in Bude. Come in and see the mural, chill and eat in Bude’s most exciting cafe.
The mural was followed by another style experiment and a very happy customer bought a huge canvas print of this artwork to hang in their beautiful home extension.
December was the best end to the year with a large commission order. Following a few emails and zoom sessions with my clients to discuss their commission, I spent most of December creating and painting this large 150cm x 70cm box canvas in beautiful, vibrant swimming mackerel. With silver metallic paint detail it really is an eye catching, stunning artwork.
I have a few projects to start 2022 with. If you are looking for that special gift, commission artwork for your home or prints and canvas prints, then contact me, I so look forward to hearing from you.
…..have kept me really busy over the last few months. Walks and collecting images, photos and colour inspirations have made filling canvases with new artworks a dream!
I completed a beautiful fish swirl commission recently and was able to play with the most exciting colours. the brief was ‘colour, sunset colour’
The original artwork was painted in acrylic paints on a 60cm x 60cm box canvas. Just after I finished it a customer ordered a huge 100cm x 100cm canvas print. The quality and likeness to the original is incredible and the quality of my canvas prints is truly excellent.
Hedgerows are also a big favourite of mine to paint and after walking along the Cornwall coast path between Bude and Widemouth I photographed the beautiful flowering summer pathways. Mixed with a blue sky and sea and the grasses and flowers I created this artwork which is now for sale.
This original is painted on a 40cm x 40cm canvas board framed in a white floating frame overall size 46cm x 46cm £375
You can also order prints, canvas prints and cards.
Let me finish with sharing the beginning of my new artwork. A large 100cm x 100cm box canvas fish swirl and it’s a beauty!
Enjoy the rest of August and if you are looking for new artworks inspirations for your homes then email or give me a call to discuss your own commission painting. You can also order prints, canvas prints, cards, wood art, stone art and home accessories from my etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/RebeccaDaveyArt
…and we are still in Lockdown …..but with a Road map out !
I have been busy painting Commission artworks over the last few weeks. The two commissions this month could not have been more different and both wonderful to paint. I am so excited to share them with you.
My Lobster commission was large and exciting to paint to achieve the effect of the Lobster shell. Finished with a subtle bronze metallic paint to catch the light he will definitely be a talking point up on the wall in his forever home.
My next commission is a real favourite of mine, Cornwall’s weathered trees and hedgerow. Another large piece which I couldn’t stop painting. The brief was blue sky, seagulls, glimpse of sea , trees and hedgerow. The clients loved it and I will be able to go and see it hanging in their new beautiful white walled extension to their house when Lockdown rules allow!
I am so pleased to be able to support the Cornwall Hospice Care art auction which opened last week. I have donated an original framed fish swirl and you can view and bid on the amazing collection of artworks by clicking on this link :
