Seven Trees
Seven Trees. Keith Melling

Seven Trees

These trees are in the middle of a field near where I live. Curiously they form a straight line and probably were part of an old field boundary. I first sketched them in 1990, some years later making a small etching-- from the etching I made this painting. So the picture has evolved, the sky becoming progressively more dramatic. There is a folk tale quoted by some, of seven Pendle witches being cursed and turned into trees, but there are similar claims from other places around Pendle Hill.

Malham Tarn from Nappa Cross  -  Yorkshire Dales
A more contemporary treatment of this subject sees Malham Tarn from a distance nestling in its hollow. Malham Tarn is one of only two natural lakes in the Yorkshire Dales, the other being Semerwater. The original painting was done on three separate canvases.

On Penyghent, looking south to Pendle Hill - Yorkshire Dales

Quite a dramatic blustery day on the summit ridge of Penyghent (properly Pen-y-Ghent) . Penyghent is the smallest of the Three Peaks, yet its pleasing shape has a huge presence.

Drystone Wall, Moughton Scars  -  Yorkshire Dales

The Yorkshire Dales are criss-crossed by a maze of drystone walls. This painting zooms in on a specific detail which makes an interesting  abstract composition (I hope).

The Three Peaks comprising (from the top and in order of height) Whernside, Ingleborough and Penyghent are perhaps the best known mountains in the Yorkshire Dales. In this painting (or three paintings) Whernside is shown from Black Shiver Moss, Ingleborough from White Scars and Penyghent from Norber.

Calm Evening Grasmere, Lake District

Painted from the shore below Loughrigg, looking towards the prominent Helm Crag, this Lakeland picture was completed with a very limited palette. I wanted to emphasize the intensity of the deep blues, using mainly ultramarine.

On Blea Rigg, Dusk Over the Langdale Pikes  -  Lake District

Most of my pictures are painted with oil paint, but here I used watercolour, painting swiftly without even any drawing. As the darkness descended it became increasingly difficult to see. The walk back to Grasmere was dodgy to say the least.

Wastwatwer Screes  -  Lake District. Keith Melling

Wastwatwer Screes  -  Lake District

I sometimes like to use a broader technique in my paintings, as I did here to capture the ruggedness of this subject; mixing sand in the paint to give texture and to represent the boulders on the lower slopes. This is the deepest lake in England and is often a dark rich colour. There is always an indescribable atmosphere here, whatever the weather.

Under Cracked Ice the Flowerstones Bloom

Walking through fields during winter, Sam noticed the interesting patterns under the cracked ice of the frozen path and duly photographed them. I later re-worked his digital image to make this print.  Blue represents ice and the white swirls the cracks and bubbles, grass can be made out, and stones
almost look like flowers.
