Commissioned Painting of Painsthorpe

Just finished a commission of Painsthorpe in the Yorkshire Wolds and am really pleased with it, as thankfully is its new owner. I really enjoyed conveying the special soft light colours you find in the Wolds; the chalky whiteness and the special quality of the light. The Wolds are so spacious and gentle.

I love doing commissions, they always help me expand my practice and have produced some of my best work.

Really enjoyed painting this commission of Rosedale. Commissions are a great opportunity to hone painterly skills. In some ways I really liked the simplicity of the early stages but it had to be taken further and the brief was lots of warm colour.

Someone once sent me a little saying in an anonymous ‘share a special part of a poem with a stranger’ project.
It went something like this...

In the darkest part of the dark night - the light comes.

At the time I tossed it to one side dismissively as somehow not coming up to the mark in the profundity I was seeking.

However, it stayed with me and came to mind again when I made the arduous journey from ‘Helmsley Walled Garden’ to ‘Falling Cups’.
