Greenfield Brook & Holme Moss
Acrylic ink & watercolour on paper
The painting is for sale at The Swan Inn, Dobcross.
This drawing was done above Greenfield Reservoir in the aftermath of Storm Arwen on Sunday 28 November 2021. The snow underfoot had the texture of crushed velvet, reminding me of a pair of brothel creepers I used to wear in my punk rock days.
The mottled appearance in the sky was from the watercolour freezing when it hit the paper. It was minus 12 that morning! The mast on the horizon is Holme Moss, the highest transmitting station in England at 1,719 feet.
