Summer Drawings & Paintings

A series of drawings and paintings based on walks taken while on holiday in the peak district, where we stayed in Hathersage, and in Seahouses on the Northumberland Coast.

The drawings and paintings were created in my studio in Doncaster after the holiday, based on photographs and memories, I didn’t make any sketches on site on these trips and ended up wishing I had.  The hardest part of the process is finding the colour of the elements in the scenes given the inaccuracy of photography and the difficulties of seeing digital photographs in varying lights and at various angles.

The Seahouses images were very difficult in that regard and I remain unconvinced, the images from walks around Hathersage were/are equally difficult, they’re all still on the boards and I’m not sure they’re finished.
