There is a reason they call midnight the "witching hour". This is one of a series of paintings trying to accurately represent what it is to walk across meadows late at night, with all the confusion, disorientation and stumbling that one experiences. In this painting, the full moon interacts with a tree to make a sinister face, while a distant motorway stains the sky orange and red. The rest of the landscape is just defined enough to add convincing space which makes the face really loom out of the darkness.

This painting is unframed, approximately 12" x 16" and on deep canvas. The sides of the canvas are painted black. As with all my paintings it is made from high quality artist grade materials.

Painting the night as it is and not as a technicolour fantasy is a severe technical challenge. I strongly recommend it to any painters who want quickly to improve their handling of space and light and want to increase the subtleness of their colour use.

Alan is an artist based in Surrey. From his studio in Staines-upon-Thames, he paints landscapes, investigates whatever catches his attention and is currently prototyping some top secret & beautiful things. He trained at Farnham and has shown in many open and group shows throughout London and the South East, has had one major solo show and has been artist in residence for a manor house in Buckinghamshire. His work is in many private collections. “A high proportion of my work is the local landscape. Initially this was nothing but a combination of convenience and a long term fascination with the depiction of space, but as I have dug deeper it has begun to act as a proxy for more personal ideas.”
