Ethereal Paintings of Spirit Animals Wandering Through Landscapes Bursting with Color

Ethereal Landscape Paintings by Gill Bustamante

Elusive

Based in Sussex, England, artist Gill Bustamante creates large-scale, ethereal landscape oil paintings. Often working with a vibrant color palette—ranging from a rich turquoise to fiery oranges and deep reds—Bustamante describes her style as “a fusion of Expressionist, Impressionist, Semi-abstract, Art Deco, a little Art Nouveau and whatever mood I’m in that day.”

Inspired by “the patterns of nature and the energy, colors, and spaces of the landscapes and animals” around her, the colorful paintings depict mystical forest scenes. In many, the focal point is an animal who poses in stark contrast to the abstract, psychedelic woodland scenes. These animals include birds, big cats, deers, and stags, who live among vivid, elongated trees that look as though they’re dripping off the canvas. Bustamante’s aim is to provide her viewers with a world to “escape the manic pace of life and imagine themselves somewhere better–even if just for a little while…”

If you’re enchanted by Bustamante’s paintings, you can buy them on Etsy and Saatchi Art.
