An Artist in Lakeland  (signed book)

This inspirational book focuses on Keith Melling's paintings of the Lake District, describing some of the most beautiful scenery in England, from the boulder strewn fells to the vast sheets of pristine water. It is presented in a handsome glossy format that can be either a good coffee table book or simply a good read with ample illustrations. although lakes and mountains are the mainstay of these lovely pages. the district has much more to offer; there is an interesting coast line and a little limestone as well, which Keith dips into, explaining his fascination for these outlying areas. From time to time, he also mentions his painting methods.

“You can step into a Keith Melling painting and lose yourself. The detail in his panoramic views is so crisp, you can almost smell the air, feel the fresh breeze on your cheek. Your eye travels great distances to horizons that go on and on: the longer you look, the more you see.”
The Artist

“There is nothing rushed about Keith Melling’s finely-detailed landscapes... Everything is carefully judged.”
