An Ancient Glamour is a large woodland path oil painting of a bluebell wood with deer. It is 36x60x1.5 inches and is painted in a modern contemporary impressionist style. The painting shows a view through trees towards the edge of a forest where stags and deer wait in the light between the trees. Bluebells and other forest foliage are hinted at along with the impression of dappled light falling onto the path and trees and flowers. The title refers to the magical property that fairy tale characters apparently have of being able cast a 'glamour' over themselves to alter their appearance - just as bluebells in April transforms woodland. This particular woodland was inspired by a walk through woodlands around the Balcombe lake area of West Sussex. Entering a path into woodland is like going into a whole new universe and when the bluebell scent is on the air as well, it is one of the best displays nature makes. I have tried to emulate this feeling by making the painting something you feel you could walk into and then you can imagine what lies at the other side of the forest. It is painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang, no frame needed and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
