Painting: Oil on Canvas.
The Silent Valley is the nr 2 of the Collection North & South
It's an oil on canvas painting with frame high standard frame 45,5 x 35 x 3cm
frame is 3cm wide, 3cm thick
This is a new and unique project which I am creating from the idea to show initially the similarity and differences between two beautiful places that fascinate me to no end: the Scottish Highlands and the Portuguese Alentejo, however I can represent many other places in world making a difference and similarity of north and south.
I am omitting the sky using a dark grey like the old school used on portraits and flowers, with this idea I was able to create a stronger focus on their shapes and colours and bringing to light their differences and similarities, also making the painting more stylish and modern with a combination of the technique used on landscape.
These two regions, despite being almost completely opposite, share more in common that one might initially think. Their pure, natural beauty and dramatic intensity inspire a peaceful and hopeful feeling.
Initially the idea was creating paintings of Scotland but then I realized the beautiful landscapes of Lake District, the moors of Yorkshire and Lancashire make as well a perfect match for these Series. Maybe the South will be represented by others landscapes scenes of different countries as well.
The result of these paintings is a more contemporary artwork which can be beautifully framed with a modern frame or used in a classic environment with a rich, classic frame.
