Georgia Kousoulou father's mansion contemporary abstract cityscape by Sara Sherwood

London cityscape artist explains “Love is the real power”

ART INSPIRATION
The cityscape “LOVE is the real power” topical for Valentines day, at Towie star Georgia Kousoulou’s father’s mansion. Art lover Louca Kousoulou fell in love with the painting the minute he saw it.

The colours of the art are reflected in the chandelier and the warm colours illuminate the room. It extends the magic of the painting into the home decor. I spent a few days with Louca, home styling and decluttering the mansion to bring it to its full potential. He now has art in a number of rooms and says:

“Sara’s Art has brought love and warmth to the house, which has generated a sense of wellbeing and positivity. This art has definitely created a vibe of love flowing through the air”.
Quote by Louca Kousoulou

"Waves of Love" oil on canvas by Sara Sherwood

“Waves of Love” oil on canvas by Sara Sherwood

I enjoy painting skylines of any city on commission. I have been doing so professionally for 11 years, since I became a full time artist in 2005. I listen to see what the favourite paintings are and generally I can see a style commonality. It might be the way I have #painted reflections or sky or lots of white space or lots of texture. I then discuss colours and feel of a work of art as well as the landmarks or abstract nature. I have all I need to create. I do not do preliminary sketches I just paint. This way my art stays free.

Testimonial below:

“Sara, we just wanted to say how absolutely over the moon we are with our painting! It is perfect, exactly what we had hoped for! We have dreamt of owning a piece of your work for so long that now it is hanging in our room we just cant stop looking at it! I cant think of any better way we could’ve used the money we received as wedding gifts -it is such a special piece and we will forever treasure it and all the happy memories it holds.

We feel very lucky to have met you. You made the whole process of commissioning a piece so personal and your desire to “do the best possible painting for us” shone through. So thank you- thank you for all the years we have ahead of us enjoying your painting and thank you for creating new dreams as we start to save for our next piece!!

I think- it was so lovely to watch our painting grow and evolve – even hung on the wall now we keep noticing new things about it, we just love it.”

Best wishes
Suzanne and Johnnie

"Rainbows Within" oil on canvas by Sara Sherwood

“Rainbows Within” oil on canvas by Sara Sherwood

#Painting Skylines is very rewarding and I keep wanting to explore and take the art in new directions as soon as I have finished say a #painting of London, I want to try something else, like the reflections of #Tower Bridge in a new colour or putting in more flowers and then I #paint and it just happens and nothing I thought to do appears, just something else equally beautiful and then I think to do that again and then something else totally new happens. I suppose that is really letting go of the outcome!

I also enjoy the discipline of working on commission you have to keep the focus, but that just flows too.

This latest “Rainbow collection” is about celebrating joy in life. #SaraSherwoodArt at #SkylarkArtGalleries unit 1.09 #Oxo Tower Open Tuesday to Sunday 11am to 6pm. We are a collective of artists and there is an artist on duty every day. There is an eclectic mix of art; something for everyone at a range of prices or just come along and enjoy.

#SkylarkArtGalleries unit 1.09 #Oxo Tower
#SaraSherwoodArt Artist in residence on 11 February and Sat 20th Feb,11am to 6pm or by appointment.

#Art image: “Rainbows Within” is about inner beauty

Cityscape Skyline of London: printed bags and hand embellished prints by Sara Sherwood.

Cityscape Skyline of London: printed bags and hand embellished prints by Sara Sherwood.

#Spitalfields Art Market 8 to 10 October #SaraSherwoodArt
I love to paint London skyline paintings as this is my home town, but am also well travelled so can draw upon inspiration from all over the world to create paintings of New York, Paris and beyond. I am also inspired by the light in Greece and this element is captured in many of my paintings.

I have introduced a range of products. All made to order, lead time is 2/3 weeks.
My new sample bags and silk scarves will also be on show in the “Rainbows Everywhere” design also available as a hand painted print with a lead time of 4 weeks approx.

I have also created an exclusive range of larger hand embellished silk scarves and signed bags. Prices vary depending on materials and hand embellishment techniques. Please contact me for details.

Other designs and colours available, please contact me for info at ideas@sarasherwood.co.uk

Painting of London in oil on canvas "Your love has given me wings" by Sara Sherwood

Cityscape in oil on canvas “Your love has given me wings” by Sara Sherwood

#Spittlefields Art Market 3 to 5 September #SaraSherwoodArt
My aim is to create a cityscape that is a lightscape painting of London. Thinking about the northern lights coming to London and combining that with the energy of movement throughout the city. Combining vibrancy and calm is an interesting process on many levels. Hope you enjoy! To see more visit www.sarasherwood.co.uk

Abstract oil painting "Angel wing protects" oil on canvas by Sara Sherwood

Abstract oil painting “Angel Wing Protects” oil on canvas by Sara Sherwood

My abstract oil paintings just flow in their own direction when I work on commission. I take a brief listen to what is required then start painting, trusting and letting go. I am then free to be paint and respond with the heart and mind. This way I can create a contemporary work of art without restriction. This work of art was created to go with “Curtain of Light” it has soft silvers and magenta running through the blue. To see more abstracts check out www.sarasherwood.co.uk
