About the artwork

This painting was inspired by the peacock that frequently visits my garden. I wanted to use the fabulous colours of his plumage to paint a woman in a gorgeous transparent dress of blue and green. Her hair is aflame, full of heat and passion, even though she is standing on snow or ice. I have used watercolour and "Inktense" permanent water based crayons. It's painted on my favourite paper which is cotton, handmade in India. It is blue/grey in colour, dyed with natural colour, and has a deckle edge. This can be featured when it is time to frame the painting, rather than covering the edge with a mount/mat. Available unframed Packed carefully Sent by Tracked Delivery. I include a Certificate of Authenticity with all my artworks.

Phyllis Mahon

My artwork is both figurative and landscape, inspired by literature, poetry and romantic love. I graduated from Belfast College of Art in the 70s and my studio was based in London's East End until I relocated to the Lincolnshire Wolds in the early 90s. This eventually introduced the element of landscape into my art: what used to be large, dark, pastels involving only a woman or a couple, evolved into smaller, brighter works, where lovers dance or repose in a pastoral setting - and the landscape itself has become a subject, not just a prop for my dancing deities! I work full-time at my art and occasionally illustrate editorial. In 2004 I received an Arts Council Award to learn stone-carving; I occasionally carve in the local limestone. My... (see more)
