About the artwork

"Blue Spring Day" was inspired by some lovely birch trees near my home in the Peak District. Sunlight plays through beautiful leaves creating dappled shadows and light, while the delicate textures of the birches contrasts with the bright tones. This is a most beautiful fresh time of year in the woods the colours being delicate and the scent of flowers on the air. An original artwork, one of a kind, this painting has been created with high quality acrylic paints on deep edged canvas. I begin with observation of the place making notes and taking photographs to work from in the studio. From these beginnings I work intuitively, painting some base layers with a brush and then impasto techniques layer on layer applied with a palette knife. Harnessing optical mixing techniques employed by the impressionists and some of the methods of the old masters such as scumbling and glazing. I continue working until the painting reaches a natural conclusion. The result is a contemporary painting, which lies somewhere between abstraction and realism. The painting continues round the sides, a frame is not needed and it is ready to hang. For secure shipping I package work securely insuring and tracking for the journey by special delivery with parcel force from the UK. Feel free to contact me with any queries you may have regarding my work and methods.

Amanda Horvath

I am a contemporary artist producing vibrant colourful and highly textured original paintings. After studying fine art at Sheffield Hallam University, achieving a B A Hons (1st class) I subsequently lectured in colleges. I now practice full time as an artist from my studio in the Peak District. Painting is a response to the beautiful landscape around me, the experience of being in the place is an important part of the process. When I paint trees and forest scenes I attempt to capture the ethereal quality of light filtering through the leaves. I hope to impart the sense of peace and meditative calm I feel in these quiet places, whilst conveying an unspoken conversation with nature.
