Cumbrian Watershed (NPM 53)
2010, Oil on board 1200
79 x 75 cm

Imaginary landscape based on experience of walking among the high moorland blanket bogs of the North Pennines. This landscape is shaped by two opposite geological forces. The layers of stone were built almost 500 million yeas ago in shallow warm seas which were periodically inundated producing the typical layers of limestone, sandstone and shale of the North Pennines, over 2000 feet deep in places. More recently waves of glaciation eroded most of this stone away leaving remnants such as Cross Fell at the very tops. In this painting a mountain like Cross Fell floats like a serene snow clad island above the peat bogs of the east Cumbrian moors- another world, mysterious and wild like the sea.
