Descriere

A collection of drawings by the landscape artist famed for his moody portrayals of the Yorkshire moors, including his personal reflections.
 
I am not one for pretty pictures. Perhaps when I am long gone this will be a quote that I am remembered for alongside my paintings. For you will mostly find me in the gallery on a sunny day and out on the moors when it is at its most inhospitable, for these are the days that captivate me.
 
Ashley Jackson's Watercolour Sketches is a collection of the artist’s raw drawings combined with his intimate thoughts and feelings. Jackson uses his sketchbook the same way others create diaries of words, and it reflects his relationship with the Yorkshire landscape. Originally intended only as his personal recollections, they are now shared in this book, allowing us to join him in his artistic journey and conversation with nature.

Hebden

Here I am at Hebden, a village within the parish of Craven, North Yorkshire. It is a designated conservation area within the Yorkshire Dales National Park due to its historic settlement patterns, and was first mentioned in the Doomsday book of 1086.

As I have often said, Some days are diamond and some days are stone, but if you only venture out on the sunny days how will you ever know which days are which?

Thus although this sketch says it was ‘raining again’, I make no apology, for there is more drama in a rain-filled sky or impending storm than there is in a blue sky ‘perfect’ day.
