Rabbits at the canal
Rabbits at the canal is a Fine Art Print of a landscape painting by Cheshire based artist Ken Davies.
The piece was inspired by many walks along different canals. The scene and the colours suggests a bright autumn day. There are around 20 rabbits hiding in the scene – some are more obvious than others and if you look closely you can also spot Nellie. When looking closely at the piece the rabbits pop up all over the scene but as the viewer stepss back the rabits merge into the overall composition. The reflection of the water is paticularly effective from a distance. The painting was recreated from memories of many walls along canals and is not of any particular canal.
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.Rabbits at the canal 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.
