Site description: Original acrylic paintings by Shropshire artist John Penney who paints in a distinctive and highly recognisable style.
Editors comment: The main image above is a painting that evokes feeling, Billie is a jazz singer and the painting shows the artist has captured to perfection, the original work is for sale at £200.00, that is good investment I feel.
Orange Sunset is lovely, the warm yellows make for relaxation. Winter Tide is a painting of Venice when it becomes 'swallowed up' by the sea. Whit strong reflections and a sky brim full of stars what more could you want. Still Waters is beautiful, the cool blues with a gentle warm orange, the colours and tones compliment themselves extremely well. Again £200.00 is an investment. Ellesmere Church and Mere is a painting that I could live with, the calm water and the pleasure boat against the backdrop of the church. The methods used to paint the trees is quite simply brilliant, a wonderful summer in Shropshire. Skyline Jazz is a 'complicated' painting that has to be studied to understand what the work is saying. You need to see the larger image to appreciate the work that has been put into it.
