Original painting in oil on canvas.
"Very thinly stained, this piece reflects my experience of water whilst kayaking over the summer in Pembrokeshire. It is part of a new body of work in which I have been trying to capture the light on the water and the sense of watery-ness in my paintings."

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.
