This beautiful landscape print of OAKHAM in the heart of England’s smallest County Capital – Rutland – is one that will always delight.
As a high quality print none of its original charm has been lost. Painted originally in Kerry’s unique Naïve Art style. The elements of whimsy and playful charm are central to this rendition of Oakham in paint.
It is a playful image which has paid homage to the historic town and its buildings which can be easily spotted with a visit there. Significant features include the castle, Victoria Hall and the railway level crossing, along with many of the shops and galleries that can be found there. In a world of colour Kerry has chosen carefully the colour palette befitting this vibrant albeit petite County Capital. Warm tones are punctuated by flashes of vibrant pinky-oranges and vibrant spring greens to make this an image which is full of energy and delight.
Though this is a print none of the detail has been lost in this reproduction. The fine details and use of layers can still be clearly viewed as on the original, as can the overall composition. You can clearly see the makers marks that were on the original canvas and this is important as it plays a role in the image that the artist was at pains to make in her own unique British Naïve artist style.
As a fine art print this image on high quality paper is set beautifully into a crisp white mount with a healthy margin.
With its near dimensions of 40 x 50 cm there’s an easy option to frame this stunning print in an off-the-shelf frame or alternatively you may feel something a little more bespoke is more fitting this gorgeous work of art!
This print of Oakham is one that will continue to make you smile. No matter how long it hangs on your wall, this beautiful landscape print will continue to delight for years to come.
