  • Still Life, Painted Objects

    £350

    Available

    A small but powerful still life composition by British artist Lloyd Durling, painted with oil stick, oil pastel and graphite onto linen panel. Signed, titled and dated on reverse.

    Central to this painting is an intense engagement with oil stick and graphite on linen that explore the interface between painting, drawing and collage. There is a balance between expressive play and tight control and with this comes an expanse of associations that push beyond simple categorisations of abstraction or scale. The information in each painting, given by gesture or mark, is reduced to a fleeting register on the surface, as if each mark has to count.  

     

    Both painting and frame are in excellent condition.

  • Rising Blue

    £350

    Available

    A small but powerful abstract composition by British artist Lloyd Durling, painted with oil stick and graphite onto linen panel. Signed, titled and dated on reverse.

    The idea of topography is of central importance and is explored through continuing walking projects. These serve as opportunities to gather diverse source material through physical and emotional interactions with whichever environment chosen to traverse. It amounts to a kind of urban and rural wandering where the information gathered is reinterpreted or reimagined feeding into a deep connection with landscape, arrangements of ancient monuments, light, shadow and forgotten histories – all of these elements find a way into the work.

    Available

    A small but powerful abstract composition by British artist Lloyd Durling, painted with oil stick, oil pastel and graphite onto linen panel. Signed, titled and dated on reverse.

    A play on texture, form, shape and line create this very satisfying pattered abstract. The tactility of the linen panel really enhances its raw, textured effect.

  • The Boat

    £315

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A small, mid century oil on board, painted in 1957.

    A seemingly simple yet very effective composition of a boat, painted in a semi abstract manner. The artist has  applied bold, broad and textured brushstrokes on the board, in deep, rich, vivid colours. Through the use of colour, the artist suggests to the viewer that this is a scene at sunset. The horizontal brushstrokes in the background  start off in a palette of blues, suggesting the sea, and then as we move upwards, the artist has incorporated reds, pinks, yellows, and orange tones to capture the sunset sky.

    The painting is housed in a wide profile wood frame with visible grain. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

  • Mountain Views

    £335

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore..

    A stunningly executed panoramic winter landscape composition, painted in oil onto canvas.

    Painted in an expressive manner, a calming palette as well as short and lightly textured brushstrokes combine to form this painterly composition, featuring expansive views over a snow capped mountain landscape filled with trees.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a gilt frame with an inner green window, and is in overall good vintage condition. The colours of the frame pick up on the colours within the painting beautifully. The frame has some minor scuffs, and the painting has some light areas of craquelure, commensurate with its age.

  • Season

    £350

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore..

    A small yet characterful mid-century abstract painting, executed in oil onto board.

    Although largely abstract in nature, the painting could resemble a winter scene, with trees with orange leaves in a snow-covered landscape.

    This painting is characterised with short and expressive brushstrokes that have been executed in a swift and confident manner. This adds vigour and a lovely texture to the work.

    The painting’s small size would make it the perfect addition to a shelf, bookshelf or above a bed side table.

    This oil on board is mounted on a wide profile wood frame that suits the painting perfectly and enhances it. Both frame and painting are in very good vintage condition.

  • Offload

    £330

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A small but very interestingly executed mid century oil on board, housed in a wonderful frame.

    This semi abstract composition features broad, expressive and textured brushstrokes. The artist has used contrasting and non-realistic colours to create a discernible scene where two figures appear to be standing on a truck with an open door. The artist has also exercised restraint with his paint, using what appears to be simple and minimal brushwork to execute the scene at hand. It is this restraint that shows off the artist’s skill, and makes the composition a very satisfying one to admire.

    This oil on board is in very good vintage condition. It is housed in its original mid century linen-lined frame. There are ageing spots on the frame, commensurate with its age.

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A small but very well executed mid century oil, painted onto board and beautifully framed in its original mid century wide profile frame.

    In this quaint picture, we see a lone figure walking by a cottage. The artist has use wide and distinct brushstrokes painted an expressive style, but yet skilfully managing to depict this scene within a very small space. The colour palette of rich earthy browns and cream imbue this painting with a wonderfully subdued and mellow tone.

    This miniature oil painting is housed in a wide profile wood frame with an inner gilt window and a linen lined border. The painting is in very good vintage condition. The linen lining on the frame has some age toning commensurate with age and in keeping with its style.

    Double Sided Portrait I

    £165

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An intriguing double sided oil on board:  one side depicts a pair of women looking into a book, and the other side features a striking single portrait of a woman.

    The painting of the two ladies with the book is very textured, with multi directional and distinct brushstrokes creating a very dynamic and layered image. On the other side, the portrait of the woman is smoother in texture overall, but still has a very three dimensional effect. The woman has an air of mystery about her, leaving us wondering what she might be thinking about.

    Painted onto board, both paintings are in very good vintage condition and can be displayed on either side. There is some slight paint loss to the very edges of the board but certainly does not detract from the overall charm of either picture. It could be displayed in its current state on an easel or leant against a shelf. Should you wish to have it framed and would like our assistance, you can contact us via email info@discerningpalette.com.

    Vision

    £221

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A sombre panoramic landscape presenting vast open lands of shrubs, with mountains fading into the distance.

    The artist has used a restrained colour palette comprising mostly of various shades of blue, with some hints of green in the foreground.

    The brushstrokes, though soft and subtle, are thoughtful and precise, imbuing  the work with an overall sense of nostalgia and mystery.

    It is worth mentioned that the edges of the work remain visible, exposing the substrate beneath it. This vignette effect further draws our attention to and emphasises the subject matter.

    This oil on panel is housed in a complementary silver frame. Both artwork and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

    Off to School

    £225

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A lovely and endearing miniature oil on canvas depicting a scene of a pedestrian walkway on a fine summer’s day.

    A woman in the foreground can be seen walking with her 2 children to drop them off at school. They are holding flowers in their hands, that they’ve picked along their journey.

    Rich and saturated colours fill this energetic painting; and the short and textured brushstrokes imbue the work with a sense of liveliness and joy.

    What’s special too is that the artist has uniquely enhanced the greenery portion by adding graphite detailing in a ‘scribbled’ manner, adding a sense of three-dimensionality to the trees.

    The painting is housed in a white card mount, and a green stained wood frame with a blue and gold inner wood border. The colours of the frame pick up on the colours within the painting beautifully, making it stand out even more. The work is glazed (there is a layer of plexiglass between the frame and the painting) to ensure its longevity.

    Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Country in Colour

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A small but very striking mid century semi-abstract composition in oil.

    Reminiscent of the 20th century modernist style of ‘fauvism’, this painting features the classic fauve feature of separating colour from its descriptive, representational purpose and allowing it to exist on the canvas as an independent element. In this picture, the colour establishes a structure within the work without being true to the natural world. Its brushstrokes also carry the fauve style of being short and separated, creating a sense of movement within the picture.

    Vivid, expressive colours and spontaneous brushwork contained within a small composition create a piece that would stand out in any interior. It would work as a single piece in a small space that needed a lift, but would also work well as part of a group hang.

    The painting is housed in an off white painted wood frame that enhances its vintage character. Both painting and frame are in good vintage condition.

  • White Winter

    Sold

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore..

    A semi abstract mid century oil on canvas of a winter landscape, painted in 1957.

    In this painting the artist immediately draws our attention to the expansiveness of the snowy fields by dedicating two thirds of the composition to white, snow covered pasture. In the horizon was see a spread of farmhouses, whose scale is tiny compared to the vastness of the fields. There is a quietness and stillness to the painted scene, which has a very calming and restful effect.

    This oil on canvas has light scattered areas of craquelure across the painting commensurate with its age, but the paint is in very stable condition. It is housed in its original mid-century silver frame with red undertones that that has light wear and minor scuffs, but in keeping with its overall look.

  • Together

    Sold

    SOLD.

    An absolutely delightful mid century oil by Swedish artist Ivar Morsing, painted on to canvas. This seemingly simple yet very effective composition depicts figures on a beach. The artist has left out all realistic detail, using gentle yet expressive brushwork to capture the figures. There is a softness, and a tender-heartedness to the way he has captured the scene. Despite the use of the very minimalist palette, the artist has very skilfully imbued the painting with a luminosity, which is further enhanced by the gilt frame that surrounds it.

    Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Still Life with Fish

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A striking and well-executed still life composition painted in a modernist manner, and dated 1952.

    Placed atop a table and against a well-coloured backdrop sit an interesting mix of objects including cherries, two fish, a lemon, a capsicum and a blue container.

    The painting features rich colours, bold outlines and a nice texture, and there is a sense of harmony and balance within the picture.

    This oil on board is in good vintage condition. It is housed in a beautiful gilt frame with copper undertones, and there has some areas of scuff on the frame.

  • East and Beyond

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A small but powerful abstract composition by British artist Lloyd Durling, painted with oil stick and graphite onto linen panel. Signed, titled and dated on reverse.

    Central to these paintings is an intense engagement with oil stick and graphite on linen that explore the interface between painting, drawing and collage. There is a balance between expressive play and tight control and with this comes an expanse of associations that push beyond simple categorisations of abstraction or scale. The information in each painting, given by gesture or mark, is reduced to a fleeting register on the surface, as if each mark has to count.  

     

    The idea of topography is of central importance and is explored through continuing walking projects. These serve as opportunities to gather diverse source material through physical and emotional interactions with whichever environment chosen to traverse. It amounts to a kind of urban and rural wandering where the information gathered is reinterpreted or reimagined feeding into a deep connection with landscape, arrangements of ancient monuments, light, shadow and forgotten histories – all of these elements find a way into the work. 

    Both painting and frame are in excellent condition. 

    Lloyd Durling is a British artist working in London. His practice is painting-based and he has exhibited widely throughout Europe, U.S.A and Asia. In 2017 he was awarded a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant. Works are held in both public and private collections worldwide.

  • Fishing Huts

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A fun, playful, mid century Swedish oil, painted on board in a Naïve style (Naïve art is characterised by childlike simplicity of execution and vision. As such it has been valued by modernists seeking to get away from what they see as the insincere sophistication of art created within the traditional system).

    A row of red fishing huts line the fishing lake, and behind them we see the forest, and mountains and the salmon pink sky. To the left stands a cheerful figure, adding a wonderful playfulness to the composition.

    The painting is currently unframed and is painted onto very sturdy board. It has surface wear around the outermost edges (as shown in photos) where it was previously framed. A new frame would cover these marks. You could also choose to display in its current state on an easel or leant against a shelf. Should you wish to have it framed and would like our assistance, you can contact us via email info@discerningpalette.com.

  • Red House

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    This striking modernist oil painting features bold earthy colours and confident, painterly brushwork. There is an expressiveness in the way in which the artist has painted the landscape –  reflecting the ruggedness of the landscape and the old red houses.  Flat planes of contrasting colour create a sense of depth, and areas of the substrate have been left uncoloured – a reminder of the distinctly modernist ethos that a painting, before it is a landscape of houses and mountains, is first and foremost a set of colours and forms arranged in a certain order on a flat surface.

    The painting is housed in a typically mid century wood frame, with a lined lined border and a gilded inner window. It has some scattered areas of paint loss, as well as at the top corners of the board, but due to the style of the work the paint losses are not remarkable. The painting is otherwise in good vintage condition.

  • Admiral, Captain & Midshipman

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A set of 3 quaint and charming detailed portraits of military men in their uniforms. Featured in this set are a Captain, Admiral and a Midshipman, as indicated on the inscription on the back. They are also inscribed on the reverse  with the dating of these style of military uniforms (18th Century). In addition to watercolour, the artist has created depth and interest through the use of gouache and gold paint.

    Each portrait is framed in matching Hogarth style black frames with decorative gilt detailing. The paintings are on paper and their condition is commensurate with their age. The paper has some age toning but this in keeping with their vintage style. The frames have some minor scuffs but again, this is in keeping with the overall style.

  • Line Portrait

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A cleverly executed, charming line portrait of a lady, draw in ink. Using the simple yet expressive power of the line, the artist has created this rather striking monochromatic, minimalist composition. Reminiscent of the line drawings of Pablo Picasso, this drawing reduces what would normally be a complicated image to powerful fluid lines.

    This ink study on paper is set within a white card mount, and in a black frame with a gilt inner lining. Both drawing and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

    Size: 39 x 31cm (including frame)
