In Pauls words:
“My work reflects the rugged scenery of the landscape, either in the context of wild places or in the nature of the Pennine hills, where I live. I draw my inspiration from historical connections using layers of colour, texture, shapes and patterns applied with energy and feeling. My main inspiration is light and the effects created by the contrasts of shadows.”
It was lovely to see John and Gaynor yesterday, and even better that John left behind five new superb paintings in his trademark line and watercolour style, each depicting scenes of Upper Swaledale within walking distance of our gallery in Muker … and one of Grassington for lovers of Wharfedale!
James is one of the best loved artists at The Old School Muker and so it’s wonderful to be able to show four more of his original oil paintings, faithfully depicting the landscape that surrounds our gallery.
