A Landscape (in portrait!)

Yep…. a Morecambe Bay landscape. To be executed in portrait format. (Very tricky)

As you can see, I took my design and research very seriously…

The bay.. I started with the bay and the cliffs receding in layers to fill the box.

Challenging. Getting the lines and perspectives and foreground and horizon.. (Oh, many many cups of tea, re-draws, trips down the shore, and visits with Andrew and Rachel)

(Think we cracked it…)

Then, experimenting using paint on the bay curves and sweeps.. (good fun!)

And then the cut, the paint and the build… (this really is the easy bit). The score, the tap, the placement and again, the tap.

P1090906

P1090909

The solder, the grout and the polish…

P1090918

P1090920

P1090929

And then the reveal…. oh, happy days.

Today, on this glorious sunny morn, we fit it.

Sun was streaming in, nice and low, but constantly changing. It was fun watching the shadow track across the panel and light being thrown on to the walls. I think, in its ‘sliver’ location, this panel will have many rewarding moods and looks.

It is said, (by a friend of mine!) that, ‘when the gorse stops flowering, boys and girls will stop playing..’

P1100139

How beautiful is that. (And so I was very relieved to see it recently flowering on the Knott… and days later at Broughton Mills…. phew!) Keep it up, the gorse!
