Red Kite Over Beacons
My painting - Red Kite Over Beacons by Mike Davies


The suspended bird in flight catches your eye first.
The distinctiveness of the reds across his wings and back blend into each other.

You would scarcely be able to tell that more then one tone, one shade, one colour could define this giant.
The faintest hint of yellow traces out the lines of his eyes, his beak, his talons. The left eye more potent then the other. The cold stare locks onto you as you move about the room, you can’t escape it. Its not the size of the bird, its not the intimidating tones that you see first.

It’s that eye.


Look at the painting longer. More shapes, colours, objects become visible.

The slop of the hills in the distance, the tinges of the grass in the foreground, the brightness of the sapphire sky soars across the horizon.

You look at this magnificent bird’s home.
The vast openness, the never everlasting sky, the immobile steams of grass.
His home to claim. To reign over.
He is as free as the land.


Walk closer to the frame.
Notice the individual brush strokes.
The swiftness of each line, how they are etched on the canvass.

The delicate handling of the brush, every line is perfectly placed.
The softness of the hillside, the abrupt jagged lines of the birds feathers.
The intricate colour scheme detailed exactly, replicating the natural view of the world.


You, are no longer looking at just a painting.
You, are no longer looking at a masterpiece.
You, are observing nature’s frozen reflection
The breath taking tranquillity.


Peace.



I was given this painting a few years ago as a present. It is an original, the painting is painted onto a canvas then framed. There may be more copied of this painting circulating collectors but they can never have the original. This painting was created by step grandad, Mike Davies. He is an exceptional artist; he paints and craves Welsh Love spoons out of blocks of wood all by hand. To view more of his work please visit here.


Learnings

A painting is never just a painting; it is the artist capturing life in motion.
Portraying his view of life through paint and colour.

Next time you look at a painting on the wall or visit a gallery take a little time to look at the picture in more detail. Look at what the picture is representing. Is it a representation of real life or is an interpretation of life?


A artist has poured their heart and soul into the painting that stands before you. Someone has had to review the piece and deem it relevant and important enough to deem it valuable. Then a buyer/ collector has had to purchase the artwork and then display it in the gallery. A lot of time, effort and money has gone into the painting that hangs before on the wall. Even if your not an art scholar take the time to appreciate the masterpiece that stands before you.


A gift is a precious thing, it may not mean a lot to the average person on the street but to you it is priceless. It is a token of love from a person who thinks very highly of you.
