India Energy Paintings

Indian Painting

Pete spent much of his early painting years in India, a country imbued with light,energy and the artifacts of a deep spiritual hierarchy. Pete found India mesmerizing and spent many years capturing the sights, light, colour and spiritually charged atmosphere of this exotic country.

On one of his last visits to the country he distilled all he had learnt into a series of Energy Paintings based around a spiritual site in India, a large Estate where he had stayed many times. The energy in this place was palpable and the focus of the paintings were abstract in nature but for him drew in the uplifting and energising nature of the place, both profound and deep.

This series of Energy paintings have never been for sale as prints or originals but have formed the basis of his original sunset series using the same techniques to draw the eyes into the painting and create a sense of upliftment, wonder and light.

There isn’t much to be said about them, they are bright, colourful and abstract, but if you are sensitive to the Spiritual realms, then maybe you will pick up on the Spiritual atmosphere. If you draw a blank, then just enjoy the colours or check out the Sunset Paintings Blog. and the ski paintings on the home page www.petecaswell.co.uk

It is from these Energy Paintings Series of which a few are printed above that most of Pete’s current painting styles emanated. His long stays in India and his extensive travels around the world to places of great beauty helped to mold this series of Energy paintings into a more worldly and enlightening form.

An Enlightened Painting in India by Pete Caswell

Enlightened Paintings

Behind the cold success of Pete’s highly collectable Ski Paintings lie a intensity of energy from the heat of India.

Not many of the collectors of Pete’s cult Ski Paintings know about the origins of the ski and snowboard paintings from within the depths of the chaos, dust and heat of central India.

Having spent much of his life in India Pete took up painting in the studio of a famous American Artist who had emigrated to this most Spiritual of countries and lent him her studio and a few very apt lessons. Having sold house, home and business, Pete was living in India on and off with his wife and young daughter.

Much of the focus of the art was on the colours, the saturated colours, the spiritual, the chaos within the life and character of India. Settled on a large estate in the centre of the country Pete started his painting career with a study of a Spiritual Indian Master, Guru or Avatar who had given up speech to use only sign language to pass on his message. His face full of light and expression of words and wisdom became a study for many months and a steady stream of foreign tourists proved to be eager buyers helping to support this most Bohemian of lifestyles. Paintings sold off the easel, quite often before they were even finished let alone dry.

Many of the paintings in this collection emanate from this stay on the “Master’s” estate who had dropped his body in 1969 a most eminent year. A long study of His face, an even longer study of his Tomb of burial and the draw of pilgrims to the same spot proved an irresistible combination and endless source of patterns and colours so full of the vibrancy of life.

Pete studied the energy of these scenes and took to capturing the vibrancy and light within these scenes to canvas. This later developed into an entire collection where this intense energy of these places was distilled into his Indian Energy Collections which he later exhibited in India among his many adhoc exhibitions around the world. These will be the subject of the next blog article.

Many of the exhibitions in India were in the style of where he was painting, impromptu, informal, great fun and full of laughter and love. You could even get the odd cow or water buffalo graze by.

Impromptu Exhibition in the middle of nowhere.

Pete’s studies of energy, spirituality colour and light in India through his paintings eventually led him to paint his other passions in life the high mountains and the high seas. Within these wonderful pieces are art are woven the techniques and energy in which his art flourished so beautifully in India.

You can see these paintings on the Print site or for sale as originals.

Collecting Sunset Paintings

Sunset Paintings aren’t a subject you would normally associate with Ski Artist Pete Caswell who has a cult following among those in the know in the ski world.

Sunset Paintings and Sunset Prints

With the ski paintings fetching upwards of £2000 for the larger pieces you can still pick up a beautiful colourful large Sunset painting by Pete for less than £1000 and some for less than £500 . For 20 years Pete has been painting the unbelievable sunsets from his Art Studio near the West Coast UK in Devon.

After a hard winter of skiing and snowboarding in the Alps, Pete returns to his home and studio in Devon to work even harder surfing and occassionally squeezing in some painting of the epic waves which roll into this West Coast paradise.

“Its a blissful place at sunset and everyone should be able to share a piece of it. In fact it’s just about Bliss all the time”

Sunset Painting and Print from Saunton in Devon

The beaches in North Devon are an endless source of colour and light for Pete, with wide vistas, endless skies and beautiful beaches. Saunton beach which is just minutes from the studio and the scene of many famous films, photos and album covers. It has a mirror like reflection in the sand when the tide goes out and this creates a wonderful effect for Pete to capture on canvas.

You can get a glimpse of Pete’s summer ocean lifestyle the sunsets and ocean scenery in this historic short video.

Bright and uplifting painting with beautiful rich colours in the background giving it real presence. Waves laping into the shore from the setting sun. The shining sun reflects off the sea using real gold, silver and copper leaf. Oil on canvas 100cm x 80cm x 1.8cm deep.

As part of his Sunset series, Pete spent several years travelling the globe following the rich and famous in their beautiful yachts hosting some wonderful sunset sailing exhibitions to display his paintings.

But do check out the shipping info on the prints below

IMPORTANT UK & Europe Shipping info for Prints if you live in UK Europe. 
(If you live in the USA then everything ships from USA so please ignore this section)

The simple option is to order a Print or Canvases Print from the Back Catalogue (https://pete-caswell.pixels.com/art ) as they ship from UK or Europe if you live in Europe – If you add a frame to the Prints it gets more complicated as they ship from Europe and USA . (also if you add a frame to a canvas). Acrylic prints only ship from the USA.
If you live outside the USA then either order a print and get it framed locally which is a cheaper option or order a Canvas Print which doesn’t need framing. The normal prints unframed are printed in the UK / Europe.
You can double check the shipping by the flags next to each item in the checkout.If you want to order a framed print and you live in the UK / Europe then add the framed print to the cart and at checkout check the flag next to the order. You want to see either a Netherlands or UK flag but not a USA flag. Some frames only ship from USA and some from Netherlands. Contact me for assistance.

If you order a frame from USA, the shipping is very costly and you will get charged VAT at 20% at customs and get a handling charge plus a small delay. So its dearer and more hassle. Alternatively you can email me and I can upload the print to my new UK print site – SkiPrints.co.uk. If you want a framed print.
