Garrowby Hill series

I see Garrowby Hill every day. It rises out of the Vale of York, beyond Stamford Bridge, and marks the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds. Sometimes it glows gold.

Now that I’m allowed out to paint again, I will be visiting it regularly to record the colour and changing light of the vast panoramic view.

The en plein air painting on the far easel is 600 x 400 mm acrylic, charcoal and chalk on canvas, and the larger one on the closest easel is 600 x 600 mm acrylic (might have some charcoal and chalk thrown in as well as it progresses – we’ll see!).

Remembered Landscapes

Being confined during the Covid-19 lockup was hard for a painter of wide open spaces! Luckily, I have a huge number of sketches and studies to trigger my memories, and at the moment they are taking me back to the hills of Snowdonia.

Whenever I hit an obstacle in life, I climb a mountain. Being high in the hills, gives me a sense of distance and perspective, and allows me to think clearly.

The following are works in progress:

Remembered Landscape: Distance

Remembered Landscape: Distance

Remembered Landscape: Distance is 760 x 510 mm, acrylic, graphite and chalk on canvas board.
