Description This oil painting was created in the spring of 2013. It depicts a girl sitting on a bench in Watts Park, Southampton, waiting for an event unknown to the artist, with only a statue and lamppost for company. The statue featured is one of Sir Issac Watts, an English hymn writer, a resident of the town and born there in 1674. The park is also named after him.The painting is based on a photograph taken during an autumn day a few years previously. The oil painting is on canvas board measuring 16 x20, initially painted with a red acrylic base.
Martin Davey, Southampton Member Since March 2007 Artist Statement Hi,
Welcome to my gallery, which contains largely illustrations for the childrens market.
I like my paintings to be as accessible as possible to a wide audience. Detail and colour are important, combined with a simple visual message for any one to enjoy.
The artwork is created entirely in the art program, photoshop, from the rough drawing up to the finished work,using a drawing tablet.
My career has largely been based in creating artwork for the animation industry.
