The Gloaming is a semi abstract red, purple and gold painting of a group of deer in an evening forest. It is 30x30x1.5 inches. This painting is my valiant attempt to capture that moment when you walk into a woodland and manage to spot a herd of deer just before they see you and vanish. This particular moment was inspired by the deer at Eridge Park during January when the trees where completely bare and the deer blended into the colours of the forest even more effectively than usual. It was late afternoon and the sun was casting long beams though the trees and casting twisted shadows and strange shapes. One of the streams in this park is called the Chalybeate Spring and is the iron-rich source of the spa water in Tunbridge Wells. You can just see a hint of it behind the deer. Painted on 3D canvas, edges painted the red purple, no frame needed, ready to hang.
