A painter and printmaker's paradise
Updated: 2 June 2019
I spent a week on the coast up at Bamburgh Castle, Northumberland, UK, during July 2016. A beautiful and dramatic fairytale landscape I love – one of my most favourite places in England.
I came home with lots of sketches for paintings and prints, which unfortunately I've not been able to progress because I didn't really have enough experience to address the challenge of recording a place I was not that familiar with at the time sufficiently well. I'm hoping a second bite at the exercise will produce better results this time.
Whether I will work up all of my ideas into full large oil paintings on canvas or in to linoprints, I cannot say, though I hope to create a collection devoted to this beautiful place.
