Blue and Pink Skyscape

I've returned to the skyscape series this week. I really enjoyed this one as it just seemed to flow. The mountboard surface holds the pastel really well and so I could create depth through gradual blending and layering.

Sunbeams over Pendle from Roughlee

In this second of the Pendle series, I've zoomed in a little so that the hill is slightly more dominant. Again, it was the lighting effects around the hill that I wanted to capture. This will also shortly be available as a signed limited edition print

Art Tutor Video: Art & Soul

Here's a taster of Art and Soul from our friends at Art They introduce the clip as Burnley rather than Padiham but as they're from the distant land of Liverpool, we'll forgive them. Hope it gives you a sense of what we're about. Just click the link below and cross your fingers that it'll work :)

Sunset over Pendle from Roughlee

As promised, here's the first of the Pendle series: 'Sunset over Pendle from Roughlee'. I'm pleased with this one because it captures the light effect as the sun begins to disappear behind the horizon. Also I'm always struck by the way clouds catch the warm light of evening. I've turned this one into a limited edition print which will be available in three different sizes.
