When talented UK artist Ted Hepenstal and his girlfriend were given the opportunity to stay in a friends villa in Saleres for a week, they jumped at the chance. The result is this fabulous, post-impressionist style painting of the rooftops of Saleres.
“We had a very relaxing time in the Lecrin Valley, most of which if I’m honest was spent drinking/eating by the pool! We went on some lovely walks and visited a few of the gorgeous local villages, as well as venturing up to Granada for a day/night. We both had a fantastic time and would most definitely go back if we had the chance.”
Ted is a huge fan of post-impressionist painters, such as Van Gogh and Cezanne, as well as abstract artist, Kandinsky and it shows in his paintings, which use bold colours to capture moods and emotions and create a sense of connection to each location.
“As an artist, I want to develop paintings that speak both to me and to others about the beauty that I see in the world”, said Ted, who loves to paint landscapes and townscapes, both in his home county of Hampshire and wherever he travels – last year he created an entire series around Europe (click here to view).
He uses a variety of mediums, including acrylic, gouache, oil pastel, ink, collage and pencil and has exhibited his works at Winchester Cathedral and the Business Design Centre, Islington, as winner of the ‘Abstract and Experimental category for the Society for all Artists’.
Ted is offering Lecrin Valley followers the opportunity to buy a mounted limited edition print of his Saleres painting at a special price of £55 (including postage).
