A gathering of friends | Pyrography and Original Oil Painting

A gathering of friends - here's Alfie Hare, Hatti Hedgehog and Jenny Wren, all together passing the time of day in beautiful settings. Spring has arrived, new growth appearing all around them. 


To be able to create these wonderful pieces of wood art as well as my oil paintings of wildlife brings me closer to nature and I feel that I know each animal that I work with. 


Using carefully prepared wood with a live edge I try to tell a story with each piece i create. There are a number of processes to complete each piece from sketing out the intial idea and then pyrography to seal the composition into the wood followed by oil pigments to colour and then varnish. A process that takes many enjoyable hours. 


As an artist i have two great passions, painting and the other passion in life is wood, and how it can be used without taking away its natural beauty.


I have many memories of woodland walks and of taking close up photos of fungi, moss and what you can see on the woodland floor. I then replicate this in a composition and imaging being at that point when I start to work on the final piece the results are as realistic as possible combining pyrography, wood and oil paints as a medium to create something rather beautiful.




This piece has been pyrographed and painted on a piece of oak, in oils, and the original size is approximately 42cm x 38cm at it widest points.


Each piece comes ready to display and has a certificate of authenticity, signed and dated by Beth Wood.


I also create to order and complete commissions in any size, should you wish to have something simular, understandabily the woodbase will vary as it is a natural source.
