Hathersage           Oils     NFS

This painting has been commissioned by a couple leaving the area.
Autumn 2004, day after day, the grey gloom flattened landscape features until one afternoon gaps of blue sky appeared.  I painted ‘en plein air’ furiously between blustery showers.  The field patterns flung over the flanks of the moorland formed the main rhythms.  The gritstone edges echoed the slabs of Hathersage houses.
