About the Art
Michael John Hill was raised in Brighton, Sussex, England. His talent and interest in art developed early in life, but his only formal training came during his primary years in school. Considered a self-taught artist, Hill does endless details in his traditional landscapes that recall the style of the Old Masters. Hill blends the elements of air, water, and earth to recapture the early morning mist and sunlight known to England. He contrasts highly detailed trees against foggy backgrounds. The end result is artwork that gracefully depicts serenity and peace. He uses a combination of oil and acrylic paint to achieve his signature effects. Careful selection of undertones and canvas add to the painting’s atmosphere. The detailed trees in each piece represent people from the artist’s life. A grouping of trees may represent a family, while two trees with entwined limbs may represent a loving couple. Ultimately, Hill leaves it up to the viewers to draw from their own life and determine the meaning in the painting.
The dark trees shrouded by shadows makes the soft white snow and beautiful pink sky really stand out. The entire piece from the ripple-less water to the untouched snow has this feeling of a perfect winter morning.
