The countdown begins for my solo exhibition at Heart Gallery in Hebden Bridge. I am very excited about it!

Each day I will share one of the paintings that will be exhibited with a little information. I hope you enjoy hearing about my inspirations and the focus on each painting.

So first up; Stoodley Pike..

Stoodley Pike was one of the first paintings I did for this exhibition. The photograph was taken by one of my students and I just loved it. She kindly let me paint it and this was really the beginning of ‘Under the Same Sky’ and painting places that meant something to me.

It was the first time I had really focussed on the sky in my paintings and by using washes and blending I achieved the soft look I wanted. The foreground was a labour of love really and took many, many hours but I was striving for some colour and depth in the field.

I hope you like it!
