Rolf Harris - Elvis Entertains (Limited Edition)





Rolf Harris - Elvis Entertains
£750.00 


Limited Edition Giclee Print. Edition No. 90/195 

Image Size: 17" x 24"
Framed Size: 33" x 38"

This was painted from a television show commemorating the fact that Elvis would have been 75 in 2010 had he lived. I feel this picture really captures his huge appeal to the youngsters of the day and I love the two girls to the right of this picture, watching his every move with rapt attention. They are absolutely loving everything he does, loving the way he sounds and the way he performs."

Rolf Harris occupies a unique position on the art scene, both with his work and with his upbeat and accessible attitude to the world of art. A hugely gifted communicator, he presents prime time TV shows and headlines Glastonbury, proving that there is no audience beyond his reach. His artwork encapsulates this inspirational ability, and whatever the subject or style, every piece is linked by that immediacy, accessibility and personal impact. From powerful scenes of the Australian outback to intimate figurative studies. Rolf's art reflects the range of experiences and locations he has encountered over his long life as an artist. But despite the diverse subject matter his style is unmistakable, and his observational skill and portrayal of fine detail is second to none.

Rolf Harris - Dry Country (Limited Edition)




Rolf Harris - Dry Country

£1295.00

Limited edition of 123/195 - Canvas on board
Image size - 44" x27" (framed)

"This is a spectacular country in one of the driest parts of Australia where the rocks seem to have a blue surface staining to them - they look incredible. The country is so sparse and barren that it can't be farmed and the only trees that will grow are these - affectionately known as parachute trees. They have lots of tiny branches supporting a leafy canopy - hence the name."

Rolf Harris - Bush Sunset
£1225.00 

Framed Limited Canvas Edition of 105/ 195
Image Size: 28" x 40"
Framed size: 35" x 51"


This is in Harvey in Western Australia. The sun had set behind me, leaving everything in deep shade. But the sunlight was still hitting the bank of the trees high up in the distance, lighting up to such a brilliant orange that they look for all the world like a far-off bush fire. I did all the foreground, sketched in the bright orange background and then began to put in the mass of branches at the top. Then I started to think about what my old teacher and mentor Hayward Veal told me. He'd suggested that instead of trying to paint trees and branches on top of the sky colour, you paint everything dark, then put the sky and the spaces in between to reveal the trees and branches. I followed his advice and it worked.

Rolf Harris - Road To Paradise Valley (Limited Edition)


Rolf Harris Road To Promise Valley 

£1225,00


Limited Edition Canvas on Board. Edition No. 135/195 


Image Size: 19" x 49"
Framed Size: 28" x 57"

I Illustrated the side of a grand piano for DeMontfort Fine Art, with a long complex scene partly made up from my head, partly inspired by photos of country scenes from Northern New South Wales. These photographs showed a very green landscape, but I had in mind a parches, dry scene mainly composed of reds and oranges. When I had finished it, I really loved it so much that I immediately coated a long canvas with orange paint so I could have the pleasure again of painting a similar scene, but in a more right-angled oblong shape. As I eventually got around to working on it, the excitement of painting the scene on the piano was long months away, but as soon as I started, the thrill was there again. I hadn't realised that the piano was much longer than my canvas, and so couldn't duplicate the piano work of art. It was of necessity, shorter, but I think, exactly as much fun to paint. I don't think it would have worked as well had I made all the paddocks green instead of orangey-red.

Allan Morgan - Stormy Weather £795

Allan Morgan is a full time artist living on the borders of England and Wales.
Born in 1952 he graduated from Coventry (Lanchester) Art College with a BA Honours in Fine Art.
Since then his professional career has focused mainly on realist landscape and seascape paintings, although he has enjoyed considerable success as an illustrator.  He has recently expanded his style to encompass a more ‘colourist’ approach in much of his work.
Allan’s inspirations are his love of light, colour and atmosphere in landscape.  His influences are many and varied, from the Pre-Raphaelites to impressionism, and his paintings have that timeless quality which many leading artists strive for and often never achieve.
