Original painting in oil on canvas.
"This painting is extremely thinly painted. A wash of pink and a wash of cobalt blue, and the canvas behind speaking its depth through being left bare. This painting was finished when I had barely begun it. To me it encapsulates the feeling of looking upon the sea when it is calm. Simple, yet evocative. Calm."

Michaela Hollyfield creates ambiguous landscapes using an intuitive style. Dark, moon kissed colour emanates from the work. Rushing brush strokes wield themselves through the canvas and create organic shapes suggesting forests or a fox wreathed in a ravine of colour. Hollyfield paints atmospheric mountains, doused in quiet hues whilst another work portrays a forest as night befalls, trees stand stark against the electric blues of midnight. This journey through imagined landscapes lends the work an elusive quality, which remains captivating through the rich use of colour and the painterly attention to form.
