During the spring and summer I have started to explore the landscapes around Saddleworth. These landscapes including moorland, woodland and the valleys in-between. I am developing a new body of artwork about these landscapes, using a variety of media and on different surfaces. Part of this work is in preparation for a joint exhibition at Gallery Oldham in 2022. One approach I have been taking is to use indigo pastel, compressed charcoal and acrylic inks. I am exploring the shapes, lines and patterns in the landscapes using these media. By creating marks in variety, I aim to reflect these elements and my feelings towards these landscapes. I call this work my Indigo Landscapes Series. My previous post talks about working on paper using these media and you can read it here.
In this video I share my approaches to using the Indigo, inks and charcoal to create my Indigo Landscapes Series :
I have a studio at Woodend Mill in Mossley, Saddleworth. In the next video I share some of the works I have been creating. These have been created both in my studio and on location over the spring and summer of 2020. I talk about the works ahead of an Open Studio event in early October. The Indigo Landscape works are included.
I have just released a series of 12 of these indigo landscapes works for sale. You can see and purchase them on my gallery here.
