Paul A Reeves

I really wanted to try something a little different for these paintings. My background and training is in Scientific and Technical drawing, and many of my paintings, particularly my earlier ones, I have focused a great deal of effort into very intricate detail and perspective accuracy. I still focus a great deal of effort into my work and I have been developing and still exploring a much more distinctive style, which I am very happy with.

 

Poppies In The Wind - Acrylic on canvas.

 

I felt like trying to create an impressionist style of painting, and focus more on capturing an emotion as well as freezing an image in time. I do paint a lot of surreal paintings, and even my figurative work, I try to capture an emotion as well as an image, but with these new paintings I wanted the emotion to be the focus of attention.

 

Storm In The Poppies - Acrylic on canvas.

 

I have created quite a few paintings on the subject of war, and the damage it causes, but here I wanted to pay respect to those who have picked up arms in order to secure a privileged future for the rest of us. I hope I’ve managed to do that.

 

Prints of Poppies In The Wind, & Storm In The Poppies, can be seen and purchased here, along with many others.
