David Manicom's Online Gallery
Hey everyone this is just me guiding you through my paintings. This gallery isn't all of my paintings, but the best and my personal faves. Every month or so I change this main gallery, while I consider the small gallery album halfway down this front page (scroll down to find it, where you can click a painting and see up close) the place where I add new paintings of basic sizes. As for the rest of my paintings they are under "more" at the top, and there is a lot of them so take your time.
I am offering to sell 8x10 prints for $20 each (deals are 3 for $50, 5 for $70. Shipping is $5.
My originals are usually my highest prices, but I can take on extravagant ideas and some custom orders may soon be the higher prices because you can push my skills to do amazing works. But there is a general love for the new painting that will make all custom orders of more moderate prices be amazing paintings. Its a secret locked in impressionism and detail work, I can do it thoroughly but it looks simple, or I can bring out the detail to do say a city skyline needing many straight lines and architecture understanding. I hope I can meet your desire, there are base prices for every size for acrylic on canvas board and canvas, but like I said sometimes custom orders need a raised price, I hope you understand its about how long it takes to do them.
Thanks, DREM (David Ryan Edward Manicom).
Shining Bright 16x20 $4000
My neighborhood is adjacent to a forest. In this forest is the most beautiful connection of pathways and places you can go to. There is a pond and fields and old camping spots and an old car (57 chevy). This is coming from the pond towards our street. It is my most detailed painting to date and I would have to say from a standard of working out this is my best accomplishment to date. I love it, but I will be honest I already have new ideas of the same area. I hope you like it, and it shows what I can accomplish with your photographs.
My Wild Friend 9x12 canvas board $1,500
My Wild Friend is my favorite animal creation to date. It took about 80 hours and one whole recreation of his colours. It shows me where patience is a major virtue in painting. Even though colouring over acrylic is normal with this one the soul of the tiger was asking to be more realistic. I could feel the ability to let him or her down and not make it leaping off the page. As is i see the friend side that the wild tiger is tame or at least not a threat, but you still have to take him seriously. I hope you like it.
Serenity Clouds 18x24 $2,000
In this painting I bring together having painted about 300 sunsets before this one and all because I love sunsets. So none were practice and that aided me here. I chose to add some abstractions to the clouds and water making an impactful painting of serentiy. I hope it finds a good home.
Early Morning Chill 18x24 inches canvas $2,000
This painting is my newest as of June 2nd. It is being turned into a time lapse and real time-mixed tutorial, which will break down its parts so the average painter and paint it. That being said it is now one of my all time favorites. I love how peaceful the colors are, and I hope it finds a good home. Let me know if you want an 8x10 print for $20. Thanks.
victory Deer16x20 Canvas $750
Victory Deer is from a photograph of a doe at Victoria Park. It is done with cheap paints with varnish over the top. But don't let the cheap paints confuse you, this is a very detailed and cozy deer. She is beautiful and fierce.
British Columbia Grizzly 12x16 canvasboard $800
This Grizzly was during one of my first studies of copying from photographs. Also it was at this time that I started working with animals. I like the driftwood, it is relatively conceptual here, and yet almost looks like the photo felt.
Brook Crossing 16x20 canvas wrap around style $700
This painting is from a reference photo of my neighborhood woods where the brook runs over these very submerged logs, the same logs that have been there since we were kids. I loved the suns impact on this day and so it was natural the way the sun is sparkling and it feels inviting to walk up beside it. That was what I wanted to capture, the way you are drawn into nature to revisit it.
Coat of Many Colors 12x16 Canvas Board $650
I wanted to paint something inspired by the Bible, and a little bit of Native coloring. My heart on my sleeve I drew out what I thought would be cool, never knowing how good the light teal head would look on the eagles body of glory. I see cultures like the different colors, all different, but coming together in such essential ways.
The Invitation 16x20 canvas $800
This is part of my Truro Heights collection. I take all of the photos for references to these paintings, but this ones simplicity and yet rugged beauty is special to me. I hope it finds a great home, I hope you like it.
Heaven's Oasis 11x14 Canvas $600
Company of Friends 16x20 wrap around canvas $5,000
Heavens Oasis is from a picture of a very memorable day for my family. I was walking in Victoria Park, Truro Nova Scotia with my Dad, Sister and my two nieces and it was so sunny. I took 160 photos that day and have already used several of them because of how the sun was that day, brilliant but light like powering through puffy clouds. So the shore was more lit then yellow.
This painting of a crab apple among leaves has been a standout to many people. I love it and hope to do more like it soon. This is done with watercolor paint and is my favorite watercolor painting to date. I hope you like it.
This is my most conceptual painting, and maybe my most amazing idea. If you want to see how I built the idea visit "commissions explained" under "MORE" at the top. This painting is my example for designing ideas for customers, but its also my favorite painting. I hope you like it, and I hope the info on how I create/mash up photos that you may have taken yourself helps some people make a commission choice. Thanks.
Maitland Nova Scotia Shoreline 12x16 CanvasBoard $800
"Rarest Crabapple" 11x14 watercolor $5,000
Nova Scotia Shoreline is just that, it is Maitland Nova Scotia to be exact. I went for a country drive with my Dad a few years back and took about 200 photos. I've used about 5 or 6 already and this one was a journey. I loved subtly making the smudge of brown sandy dirt have color for water. The grass was essentially where I learned grass, this painting was a big breakthrough for me and I didn't realize its quality until much more recently.
The Rarest Crabapple 11x14 Watercolor $1,250
This is my best watercolor, I say there aren't enough hours in the day because I don't do watercolor enough. But I can for you in a custom order, think of this one as anything drawn made to exude what you saw but not expressly highly detailed. Salutations my friend.
