A Blaze of Colour: new originals
United We Stand - original monotype - image size 50 x 74cm framed size 74 x 96cm £775 unmounted, £800 mounted, £950 framed
Back in August, I shared my work in progress on these large sunset/sunrise landscapes. They are now complete and available to purchase. Just get in touch if you're interested. They are currently unmounted and can be sent internationally but I'm also happy to mount and frame them to order. I usually frame in oak with art glass - scroll down to see an example. Framed originals will be sent by specialist art courier in the UK (£60). You can also view artworks and collect from my studio. Book an appointment.
The Ascent - original monotype - image size 50 x 74cm framed size 74 x 96cm £775 unmounted, £800 mounted, £950 framed
This series of original monotype paintings is a development of my previous work on sunset skies. I really wanted to perfect the interaction of colours to give a glowing sense of light. The corresponding land area needed to both contrast with the sky and follow through with some darker linked colours. The two pictures above weren't about painting a view or re-creating a scene but using a simple composition idea to explore light, colour and texture on a large scale.
Lone Voice - original monotype - image size 50 x 74cm framed size 74 x 96cm £775 unmounted, £800 mounted, £950 framed
So this one IS a view! I've included Sycamore Gap again - our famous tree in the Northumberland National Park. It's perfect for my style of work and people always ask me for it! With the reds in the centre foreground, it gives the idea of warm light pouring through the gap in Hadrian's Wall.

The group of trees on a small hill is a sight you'll see quite often in the Northumberland area and probably a lot of other places too. I used my "ploughed fields" diminishing stripes to direct the eye to the trees and echo the sky colours in deeper tones. I'm loving that new purple - it's called Claret. The patterns are achieved by over-printing strips of textured paper. A paper stencil keeps makes the crisp horizon.
An example of the mounting and framing I normally use.
