Oil on canvas
This atmospheric painting was based on sketches and photographs taken from the top of a hill above my old studio in rural Northumberland.
It was my first winter there and I had never before experienced such darkness. No street lights and the nearest farm was miles away on the other side of the moor.
As sunset crept in, so did a storm. All light seemed to be erased from the landscape. Only a narrow strip on the horizon remained.
I used acrylic modelling paste mixed with marble dust to add texture to this painting, which in some areas was applied so it would crack to give a sense of age. The horizon is a good example of this.
A tiny glimpse of blue sky through the darkness promises a change in the weather and relief from the darkness.
