Soft subtle tones combined with striking bold tones are the vibe with our latest original from U.K based contemporary artist Ben Goymour. Ben predominantly paints from his love of the British coastal seascape but has explored other subject genres recently which have been hugely successful with his art collectors.With Ben still building on his base foundations ,he is sure to continue to evolve his artistic style and subject matters over the coming year.The trends continue for soft pastel based colours,shabby chic limed frame designs and timeless subject matters still takes lead.
The featured original this week is entitled "Apollo" and depicts a stunning image of a leopard portrait that harnesses compressed energy.
Ben's painting captures his own feelings of sentiment based on nostalgic experience. Quite often an artist pours his heart out into a painting and one can see in this painting that may highlight personal ventures to him and his experiences with his family.The painting emphasises accurate strokes of the brush leading to a very disciplined approach leaving room for freedom with any such expressionist style painting.The overall effect results in a realist effect but yet not a 'Hyperrealist' painting leaving a distinct character of its own that gives a slight 'narrative like' soft etherial approach and effect. One might say slightly narrative feel that leads the viewer in to his or her own place almost in the presence of the animal he depicts.
