Buckler WIP

16×12"

Something I have started work on and will complete over a number of days. This is a rough block in which I may add to or just go into colour, depends what I have for breakfast 

The buckler is a birthday present from a friend who knew I was looking to paint one, I actually picked it myself online. The dagger comes from the same friend who has what can only be called a heroic collection of militaria.

The pear is mine 

A buckler is a small shield used in days gone by.

About Neil Carroll

 

From my gallery bio

Neil is a self-taught artist from London. His wish to become an artist was always blocked by real life commitments but the desire never left him. With the required time now available Neil is pursuing this ambition, painting in oils since 2011.

Initially planning to be an aviation artist he discovered his true place was traditional art and subjects. Most of his paintings to date have been still life but he is also going to be exploring landscapes.

Neil is influenced by past artists such as Pissarro, Rembrandt, Chardin, Turner, Sargent, Seago and Hilder.

With work already in private collections in Europe, North America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia, we are predicting an exciting future for this up and coming artist.

"I don't try to paint what is in front of me, I try to paint something with atmosphere and interest based on the subject. I remove as much detail as possible and paint as broadly as my mood allows."

 

My paintings are for sale through stated galleries and small paintings through Ebay
