Description This is a windmill at Bursledon, Southampton. It is the only working windmill in the county of Hampshire, UK, and is currently undergoing maintenance. It is hoped that the restoration will be complete in 2014, when the mill celebrates its 200th anniversary. Visitors are able to see flour being produced at Bursledon windwill, and view the other vintage farm buildings on the site, as well as the nature reserve.This was painted in the winter of 2012 in oils on a canvas measuring 16' x 20'. The image is quite timeless in a way, with nothing from the 20th century in the scene.
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.
