The Dark Hedges

Inspired by my trip to northen Iraland at the end of last summer. I was captivated by the magnificent spender of these 300 year old beech trees. I have always been draw to natures natural sculptures and the intertwining of the branches contrasted by the strait smooth road moved me to paint them. I  have spent three months working on ‘The Dark Hedges’ an oil painting on canvas 60cmx90cm.

and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the Lord rises upon you
and his glory appears over you.

‘a Way to Go’

'a Way to Go'‘a Way to go’ is an oil painting I have recently completed and was inspired by a walk I did a few years ago in the lake district up to Grisledale Pike.

The painting has been the outcome of a months work, in which I have been exploring the theme of going on a journey, by removing all the clutter of modern living and getting out into nature. The detail in the path, focuses the viewers initial attention, proceeding then to continue the viewers gaze though out the image, to create a feeling of stillness.
