MICHAEL CARTWRIGHT ART
Michael Cartwright is a professional landscape oil painting artist. He and his wife own and operate an art gallery in Denmark on Western Australia's south coast.
He paints in two distinct techniques; traditional and whimsical Australian landscapes. The traditional paintings are a mix of realism and impressionism. A unique style which captures the scenery of the beautiful tourist town in which he lives.
Bright and colorful, the whimsical landscapes are created using imagination only. Child-like compositions along with intense colors combine to make these quirky artworks absolutely unique. They are fun paintings, with humor and charm, as if looking at the world through rose colored glasses.
Original oil paintings and giclee canvas prints in various sizes can be purchased from his online store. These delightful canvas prints maintain all the qualities of the original oil paintings. They are produced using archival materials, are U.V. resistant and protected with lamination so as to ensure longevity.

DESIGNED + MADE IN
Denmark, Western Australia
Where do you get your inspiration?
"My inspiration comes from the delightful scenery on south coast of Western Australia. It is where the forest meets the sea. A place of undulating countryside, country cottages, tall trees, rivers and ocean. Absolutely an artist paradise."
What has been your favourite piece and why?
"My favorite piece is Raging Torrent; an oil painting of river gouging its way through a karri tree forest. Indeed a challenging subject but I felt it captured the movement of the rapids and the essence of the scene generally."
What is your favourite material to work with?
"I paint with artist quality fast drying alkyd oil paints. Sometimes on canvas but preferably on board as the rigid surface suits my technique. I use brushwork combined with palette knife.
The giclee prints are produced with a wide format epson printer along with archival inks and canvas."
If you were to expand your product range to something entirely different, what would it be?
"I am considering offering super size prints in addition to the small, medium and large which are already available."
Describe your products in three words...
