Westerly Wind and Rain, Alport Moor 150cm x 100cm Canvas

Footpath Aross Alport Moor 150x100cm Mixed Media on Canvas

Finally finished a large mixed media canvas I have been working on for most of the winter. I think this painting expresses a great deal about what I feel and observe about the new weather system we seem to find ourselves in. The ground in the moorland of the Dark Peaks is constantly waterlogged the footpaths are defined by standing water, rain is a constant threat and temperatures are often well above the average for the time of the year, strong winds predominate.

Alport moor is dominated by wavy hair-grass which in winter can be a beautiful vibrant orange a great contrast to the deep burnt sienna of the peat. Even in poor weather this is an area of awe inspiring beauty and big open spaces.
