Teddies at Malham Cove
Teddies at Malham Cove is a Fine Art Print of a landscape painting by Cheshire based artist Ken Davies.
The piece was inspired by many visits to Malham. Ken first went to Malham as a young boy on a school field trip from the school in Leeds where he frew up. He has since been back many times. The scene and the colours suggests a bright day in summer. There are around 20 teddies in the scene – though they are very shy and Ken had to wait a very long time before they came out to say hello. When looking closely at the piece the teddies pop up all over the scene but as the viewer steps back the teddies merge into the overall composition. The scene was created from photographs. The bold choice of colours are particularly effective in the piece.
Ken Davies is an avid doodler and an expert colourist. Ken is often asked about how he achieves clean white lines. Although the technique is a closely guarded secret, it is a traditional technique involving and pen and paintbrushes. Hidden things are an added feature to show a frivolous side. Many observers find their own shapes in the pieces like cloud gazing or attributing meaning to ink splats.
As an artist, Ken Davies, takes his inspiration from his love of the natural environment and enjoys capturing scenes associated with nature and water. He enjoys seeking out and playing with different media combining materials that initially seem incompatible. Teddies at Malham Cove is a Fine Art Print of his hidden collection.
The print is 37 cm by 27 cm in a light snow white mount of 50 cm by 40 cm. There is the additional option to buy the natural solid wood frame which shows the work to its best.
