This is the Blog of artwork by Martin Davey. The artwork is a mixture of digital illustrations created in Photoshop, and paintings created on canvas using oil and acrylic paint media. The entries give some idea of the dates of completion, and influences and inspirations if any. The work is not listed in any particular order or time frame though generally the more recent work is at the start of the blog.

Southampton Common tree by path in Autumn - oil painting
Completed artwork of tres at the entrance to the common.
An Autumnal scene is pictured in this
scene on Southampton Common, painted during September 2019. The tree
is near to the entrance of the common, and has been recognised in
this painting. It is the early part of the season so some trees are
still green, whereas others have already lost their leaves. Other
trees display golden leaves, still clinging on to the branches.
The painting measures 14” x 13”, so is quite smaller than usual, and
is done in oil paint on a home made canvas (cotton primed and
attached to a home made wooded support frame).

Finished oil painting of a bus stop at Cockspur st, central London.
Two buses are shown parked at a bus
stop in Cockspur Street, central London during a wet summers
afternoon. Both buses have terminated at the stop and a number of
tourists are planning their next move, which may well be a visit to
Trafalgar Square. This famous Square is very close by and Nelsons
column, situated within it, can be seen in the painting. Two passing
police with bright safety jackets make a distinctive pair within the
crowd. There are a number of big buildings in the street and behind
the buses can be seen parts of Canada House. The street is also quite
old, going as far back as the 16th century. The damp
conditions of the day add interest with the scene being reflected ion
the wet paving surfaces.
This landscape painting was done during
July 2019. It measures 33” x 23” approximately, and oil paint was
used on acid free mounting board. It can be seen in greater detail by following
