Hope Valley - part of the Eastern Edges tryptych
The work shows the contours between Millstone Edge and Lawrencefield as they overlook Hathersage and down the length of Hope Valley in Derbyshire.
This work comes from the shoulder dropping sense of relaxation that comes with returning to the Peak District as you follow the Fox House road around the tight corner at Surprise View between Millstone Edge and Lawrencefield. Using the wide variety of local wildlife as a backdrop and contrast.
The colours are a combination of a strong Black with the underlying texture of emotions and a vibrant Gold for the moments of clarity, positivity and beauty that came from time spent on the Eastern Edges.
This is the third piece from the Eastern Edges tryptych.
