Summer Meadow with Swallows contemporary landscape painting

Gill Bustamante

Summer Meadow with Swallows is a 30x30x1.5 inches oil on canvas of a wildflower filled summer meadow with two swallows dancing over it. This painting is semi abstract, art nouveau and expressionist in style and was my valiant attempt to the capture a moment last August when I was in a meadow near Lingfield in Surrey. There was an abundance of colours in the wildflowers, perfumes given out by the flora and fauna, the buzzing and whine of insects and constant jubilant birdsong. Swallows were flying over and around me very quickly and as I tried to focus on the birds, the flowers and trees and grasses in the fields and meadows beyond them slid out of focus as the painting itself reflects to some degree. It gave me a totally timeless feeling and I really wanted to catch and immortalize this particular moment
