Mike Green paints landscapes, inspired by Impressionism, in oil on canvas on site and from reference photos, mainly in the Peak District & Cornwall.
He creates paintings that summon emotion in the viewer and to convey the atmosphere of the seasons in the countryside. The beauty and ever changing dramatic moods of the Peak District and Cornish coast are his inspiration. Mike draws upon the impressionist painters with their sense of immediacy, directness, spontaneity and liberation of colour. He's interested in how the eyes see light - the juxtaposition, separation and overlaying of colours on the canvas can reproduce the luminous vibrations of rays which make up light and intensify a viewer's emotional response.
Prices range from £200 - £2,100
