Cross Country
2005, Oil on board SOLD
0 x 0 cm

An imaginary Cross Fell in an imaginary (and perhaps fast disappearing) winter. Oil paint on deep dark red underpainting. Under Cross Fell and the rest of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a giant bubble of grannite whose ancient heat created all the rich veins of minerals for which the area is geologicaly famous (now a European Geopark). W.H. Auden was atracted to the hard won feel of this sparten mining landscape. Private collection.0
