Queen Hapshetsut - multimedia oil painting by Paul S. Smith Ancient Egypt, History, Egypt, Composition, Egyptian, Ancient, Heiroglyphics, Black History
Queen Hapshetsut
I created this from the imagery I had access to. The heiroglyphics are real but I’ve rearranged them together to suit the composition. And, like many of my paintings, I like to think that you are imagining something splendid and exciting happening just below.
Inferno - multimedia painting by Paul S. Smith If I Stay, Smith, Car, Paul, Bed, Moving To Australia
Inferno
When I was small in Australia I was dragged out of bed, shoved in the car and driven away and as I looked back all I could see was a wall of flame. It's stayed with me ever since
Theodosius - multimedia artwork by Paul S. Smith. Architecture, Architectural Features, Artwork, Lamp
Theodosius
I think this is one of the best examples of my work combing real cloth and architectural features with an oil painting to create a composite artwork.
Darkest Hour (Dyptich) - mixed media oil painting by Paul S. Smith. Diptych, Dark, Vivid, Oil On Canvas, Vivid Colors, Colours
Darkest Hour (Dyptich)
While these were not intended as a pair, when completed it seemed obvious they had to be. mostly they are an attempt to get the most vivid colours I could possibly achieve.
First Light - multimedia painting by Paul S. Smith Landscape Paintings, Iron, Barbed Wire, Corrugated Paper, Corrugated, Process
First Light
Barbed wire and fencing is a universal symbol. But mine is broken and finished with - and it's morning. Today is a new dawn. An optimistic picture.
Lancaster Gate - multimedia artwork by Paul S. Smith Metal, Lancaster, Fence, 3d, Texture, Lancaster Gate, Old Things
Lancaster Gate, London
While living in near Hyde Park, London this dramatic sky with a church steeple peeking over a building site corrugated fence caught my eye. The fence is more than it seems.
Window - multimendia oil painting by Paul S. Smith Studio, Sun, Hanging, Pvc, Floor
Window
One day there was a piece of corrugated pvc lying on the studio floor with the sun streaming in a casting colourful shadows which I’ve exaggerated and increased the intensity.
Flagged - oil painting by Paul S. Smith Fold, Fabrics, Abstract Artwork, Flow, Gallery, Countryside
Flagged
It's great the way some fabrics flow shift and fold - especially flags. I hope this one doesn't turn out to belong ro someone.
Transformer - oil painting by Paul S. Smith Nature, Industrial, Industrial Design, Birchwood, Landscape, Objects
Transformer
The practical demands of industrial design often produce elegantly designed objects that sit well in the natural environment.
Corrosive Pink - multimedia painting by Paul S. Smith Pink, Surface, Oil
Corrosive Pink
I have been fascinated (all right obsessed) with corrugated iron for decades because of the possibilities of texture, contrasted with colours and the effect of changing light across a 3D surface. More recently I have become excited by the use of intense pigments pioneered by Anish Kapoor in particular and produced a complex mutimedia construction which is nevertheless of similar dimensions to an ordinary oil painting.
Sydney Harbour - oil painting by Paul S. Smith Water, Paintings, Harbour, Sydney
Sydney Harbour
When I lived in Sydney we sometimes went yachting in the harbour. I began photographing patches of water and became intrigued by the variety of shapes lines and colours.
Lone - Breckland Pine. Oil Painting by Paul S. Smith Outdoor, Scots, Pine, Small Trees, Lonely, Skyline, Skyscape
Lone - Breckland Pine
Scots pines are everywhere in Norfolk and their often distorted shapes silhouetted against the skyline. Usually they're in groups but this sad one seems to have got lost
Eye in the Sky - multimedia oil painting by Paul S. Smith Eyes, Things To Think About
Eye in the Sky
I have produced several blue sky corrugated paintings but when I realised this resembles an eye I initially thought it might be a naff 70s record cover but in retrospect I like it.
River Yare - oil painting by Paul S. Smith River, Walkers, Broad, Traffic
River Yare - Norfolk
These signs at Whitlingham Broad at obviously been there for a while, well rusted which always appeals to me. They’re obviously an instruction to river traffic but we as walkers can’t see what they convey.
This water tower got my attention, became my memory of that day and inspired one of my larger paintings. Locals will know it’s not red - but I think it would look better if it was! Water Tower
Neatherd Moor, Norfolk
This water tower got my attention, became my memory of that day and inspired one of my larger paintings. Locals will know it’s not red - but I think it would look better if it was!
The Navigator - multimedia artwork by Paul Smith Interior Design, Windows, 3d Curtains
The Navigator
It's a windy day, the curtains are blowing out the window, but the weather's fine. The Navigator looks out at his instrument - it looks good and the voyage will go well.
London Sky, Paul Smith oil painting City, Green Space, Vast
London Sky, Balham
When I loived in London, I spent many hours on Tooting Common. Even though it wasn't the countryside, panoramic skys could still be very special across the city's vast green spaces. Our house formed a skyline and a frame.
Blakeney Point, Norfolk by Paul Smith. Winter, Ferry, Norfolk Coast, Weather Vanes, Grey Seal
Blakeney Point, Norfolk
On a freezing day last winter I was fascinated by this weather vane against the dramatic sky. It epitomises the north Norfolk coast.
Airfield - oil painting by Pauls S Smith. Nice, Contrast, Scenery, Island
Airfield - oil painting
A piece of industrial design found at Walney Island airfield in Cumbria, Northern England (no idea what it’s for but it looks very important) that adds an element of mystery and contrast to the sky.
Reedham Marshes - oil painting by Paul S. Smith Surrealism, Reeds
Reedham Marshes
The ‘No Restrictions’ sign floating above the reeds seemed surreal as the River Yare can’t be seen at that point but the shadow pacing across the sign is an optimistic symbol
Crucifixion Study (Hand) by Paul S. Smith) Art Painting Gallery, Christian Art, Painting Gallery, Original Oil, Hand Painted
Crucifixion Study (2)
This hand is all that remains of a much larger work I wasn’t happy with and only retained this small fragment. Perhaps you can use your imagination for the rest.
Cherry Tree Sky - oik painting by Paul Smith Waves, Clouds, Cherry Tree, Spring Time, Tree
Cherry Tree Sky
You can't mistake a cherry tree because if its distinctive - and very beautiful - bark, even after the springtime blossom has gone. This is a sad picture because, after decades of giving us joy, it is beginning to decay. But the sun is still shining for the next one...
Crucifixion Study by Paul S. Smith All That Remains, Christian, Male Form
Crucifixion Study (1)
This is all that remains of a much larger work I wasn’t happy with and only retained this small fragment. Perhaps you can use your imagination for the rest.
Reach - oil painting by Paul S. Smith Male Torso, Male Physique, Male, Enjoyment, Physique
Reach
Sometimes I just enjoy painting the figure - unless you can add depth with the various meanings of the title.
Fence - drawing by Paul S. Smith Pencil Drawings, Pencil, Paper, Frame, Contours
Fence
I am fascinated by the patterns created by corrugated iron. Please click through to the website for more ambitious work.
