This original piece of artwork is the first in a series of paintings which artist, Jay Alders takes his subject matter, technical approach and artistic style to a whole new level.
“A Bird’s High View” was created on a 48 inch by 14 inch oak panel and at first sight one can see an exquisite combination of stylized linear composition and a barrage of beautiful earth tones. This tranquil scene of a sea bird exploring the clear ocean seas gives us a peaceful yet powerful view which pulls you in at first sight.
“Many months ago during the middle of the summer, I was in bed sketching when a series of beautifully inspiring images rushed through my being. I had been thinking of fond memories from high above on the coastal hills in Costa Rica, Hawaii and Brazil overlooking the tropical waters and trees below. I love watching birds soar imagining what it must feel like. I really wanted to push my style into a more stylized paradigm and try and capture that feeling with this piece.” – Jay Alders
