I stumbled across Andrew’s work quite by accident but am now the proud owner of four original paintings and one print. All of my pieces relate in some way to the Cusworth area which is somewhere dear to my heart but I was particularly drawn to Andrew’s work because of his expressive use of colour, light and movement. My favourite piece is called “evening at the gate” where the warm evening sunset is captured perfectly as it reflects across the gate house at Cusworth Hall. Andrew’s work makes me (and those that have viewed my expanding collection) appreciate the beauty and interest of the area we live in and how lucky we are to have a talented and friendly local artist using it as his subject.
When I first discovered Andrew’s work I was immediately fascinated by his use of light and shade. To me his work evokes the sights and sense of the North Yorkshire coast. His eye for the essence of his subject takes me there in a way that I have rarely experienced previously through a visual medium. I have spent many years holidaying in Whitby and so, last year I commissioned a painting from Andrew depicting Whitby Abbey. I am genuinely delighted with the result and look forward to Andrew’s future work.
As a first time buyer of original art and following a few searches online I happened upon Andrew’s work and immediately fell in love with his painting. Contact with Andrew and the process of buying this piece was then a pleasure. Money changed hands and the picture arrived as promised, packaged safely and lovingly and ready to frame. Simple, no hard sell and actual contact with its creator (it was good to talk and discuss the picture with Andrew). It now occupies a place on our wall that was crying out for something beautiful and it has fulfilled the brief so well. This was my first but wont be my last “Andrew Farmer” and I couldn’t recommend him and the process more. Thank you.
“I’m truly delighted with my new painting of ‘Tracks’ through a field in summer time. Andrew’s work evokes the feel of the countryside wonderfully. He completely captures the sensations of a beautiful summer’s day – the light & shade, the warmth, and even the smell of the earth where the tractor has left its tracks. Andrew paints what I see, so I feel an immediate connection to his work. The combination of the timeless landscape, and the gentle signs of life drew me to the picture on the website initially. Since it arrived a few weeks ago it has given me a lot of enjoyment, and will continue to do so in the future. Thank you Andrew!”
