Description
This atmospheric scene of the view over Knighton was created from a photograph I took, looking down from Llanshay Lane above the town. The sky was moody and I think that adds something very special to the scene. As with most of my artwork, striking landscape painting is completed using soft pastels and pastel pencils on Artspectrum colourfix paper. The sharpened pencils create the detail of the town and trees, and the background is blended using polystyrene sticks to give the three-dimensional effect to the completed painting. This pastel artwork sold during an exhibition in 2005 at the Tower House Gallery in Knighton by a local resident.
