New York – Wall Painting

by Emily Pitts on June 24, 2011

in Art Commission, Inspired by...

Following an enquiry I was asked to complete this commission on a bedroom wall, for a Manchester-based client.  After an initial consultation, I created a series of mock-ups for the client, to give an idea of the type of image which might work in the space.  As the client was unsure of colour, I developed a series of colour samples from which the client chose their preferred image and colour.

The wall, sized approx. 2.3metres x 2metres, sits within a bedroom unit and is the backdrop for the bed.  The commission, which took approximately four days to plan and complete, has been well received.

If you would like a consultation on the colour, design and pattern in your home, or if you are interested in commissioning a wall painting or canvas painting, please contact me:  Contact Page

A few months ago I was contacted to complete an artwork commission to celebrate the wedding anniversary of a couple.  The piece focused on the time and place that the couple met and gave me the opportunity to create a unique marker of not only their wedding anniversary but also their way of meeting.

The anniversary was their second, which is traditionally marked by Cotton.  Taking this material and using the place they met as a guide, I undertook research about the place, the event and the weather, which culminated in the piece you can see below.  The piece is a summation of the weather, the place and the explosion of excitement that ensued from the meeting.  I used significant colours from the wedding to symbolise the importance of this meeting to their anniversary.

Here’s what Phil, the commissioner of the artwork, had to say:

“I contacted Emily ahead of my anniversary in order to get her to create something made from cotton. With very little direction Emily created a wonderful picture on canvass that really summed up the day my wife and I met! To say I was showered in brownie points was an understatement. Excellent work!”

Sparkle…New Artwork

by Emily Pitts on May 4, 2011

in All That Glitters, Inspired by..., News

Here’s a sneak preview of a new artwork for the All that Glitters Collection, in advance of a large scale version I’m going to be working on over the next month or so.

This artwork is inspired by the natural world and the spreading of nature discretely as we go around our daily chores and business.  A constantly evolving environment responds to the changing seasons and the earth’s natural clock, the sun, in a variety of ways.  Our busy lives can prevent us from seeing the glory of nature and the sparkle and value that it can add to our lives on top of the life-giving function that flora contributes to our planet. To see this artwork and many more you can visit my studio – email me at hello@emilypitts.com or call 07870 360213.

£95 excl.

Yorkshire Coast No.3

by Emily Pitts on September 23, 2010

in Inspired by..., Latest For Sale, News

  • Acrylic on box canvas
  • 152.5cm x 40.7cm

This particular artwork was inspired by a visit to Filey and by a fossil hunting trip onto the beach during damp weather, with the grey-blue sea and heavy sky casting a damp pall over the landscape and the cliffs.  The cliffs were unable to disguise the many shades, shapes and formations of rocks and detritus lying within the compacted layers.

Price: £195

Filey Coast No.1

by Emily Pitts on September 23, 2010

in Inspired by..., Latest For Sale

  • Acrylic on box canvas
  • 76.2cm x 50.8cm

A beautiful, calming and tranquil artwork, evoking the nature of the Filey coastline just as a rainstorm starts coming in off the sea.  The paint rises up off the canvas along the line of the sea – a powerful, foreboding and impenetrable mass.

Price: £125

by Emily Pitts on September 23, 2010

  • 61cm x 30.5cm

This work was inspired by travel through the Yorkshire countryside with its striking greenness reflected deeply in rivers and streams along the journey.  The paint is applied generously giving a three dimensional edge to the piece and encouraging the viewer to come closer and become more intimately involved in the work.

Filey Coast No. 2

by Emily Pitts on September 16, 2010

in Inspired by..., Latest For Sale

  • Acrylic on box canvas
  • 61cm x 30.5cm
This canvas is smaller in scale to the other Yorkshire Coast and Filey images and projects the austerity and sombre seascape during inclement weather at Filey.  The sky hangs heavy and atmospheric in contrast to the texture of the sandy shore.  Acrylic paint is used roughly to evoke the constant movement, unpredictability and power of the sea, particularly during storms.  This coastline is amongst the most beautiful I have visited and this painting is somewhat an ode to that.

Price: £110
