Derbyshire views.

While staying a week in Derbyshire I had enough time to make a few works. In landscape painting I’m trying to make my viewpoint wide the bridge to get the sense of the way the human eye takes in the whole scene, hence a nice warping in the second image. All in the Grey Sketchbook.

Abseiling in Millers Dale 1&2. Acrylic and pencil on grey paper.
In between photographing the abseilers and dodging the rain, I had the chance to make these paintings. Each was started off in a very slapdash manner and then tightened up only at the end of the process.

Still life with Taddy Porter. Acrylic and pencil on grey paper.
The colours of Derbyshire include a heather purple/pink. I’m trying to make the still life really be as strong as possible with some strong contrast and an interesting composition. The herbs were small in real life but I liked their English post war feel!

I recommend Taddy Porter.
