Sian Butler – seascape and landscape artist

Following her worldwide success painting Australian Outback scenes (she has been number one for the search terms “Australian Outback paintings” on Australian Google image search for years, and often first through fourth, or better), Sian is excited to be embarking on a new course, turning her talents to painting pastel seascapes.

Her first two paintings have sold already, and the second was sold before she finished it!

Sian is fortunate to have access to the Bay of Fires area in Tasmania, which has some of the most outstanding seascapes in the world. A feature of this pristine area is the granite rocks with vibrant, deep orange lichen, which perfectly complements the intense blues of the sky, and the blues and turquoises of the sea. I have seen some of the most beautiful coastal scenery in the world, in South Africa, Cornwall, Wales, Pacific islands and Australia, and the Bay of Fires area in Tasmania (Australia) is a standout among the best of the best.

See the “Australian Outback Paintings”, “Outback Church Paintings”, and “Australian Bush Poetry” pages for more of my mother’s wonderful paintings and poetry.

"Bay of Fires Abstract 1". Pastel abstract painting by Sian Butler.

“Bay of Fires Abstract 1”. Pastel abstract painting by Sian Butler. A close up of Sian’s bold pastel strokes.

I cropped this lower portion of the painting and intensified the colours a little to produce what I think is a wonderful abstract painting. A hint of Sian’s zest for life reveals itself in her exuberant pastel strokes. A left click on the painting will bring up a larger image.

One of the many things I love about Sian’s seascapes is how from close up they are obviously paintings, so you can enjoy the vigorous strokes and textures (so much more interesting than a photograph, and I say this as someone who is into photography), while from slightly further away, the paintings appear photo-realistic. The paintings are obviously the work of someone who has mastered both the medium and the subject matter.

I particularly like the dramatic angles in this painting, and how the waves and clouds echo each other. “The Gardens” area of the Bay of Fires, Tasmania.

Hopefully more to come.
