Description:
In over 140 superbly reproduced artworks, the distinguished artist Philip Hughes records eleven iconic walks across the length and breadth of Britain, from Allt Coire Pheiginn in Scotland to Zennor Head in Cornwall. Inspired and informed by maps, aerial photographs and the latest electronic survey techniques, Hughess clean, spacious artworks, with their arresting blocks of colour, make contemporary some of the most ancient and formidable landmarks of the British Isles. This is a beautiful, reflective book that will resonate with artists, walkers and anyone who shares a deep love of art and landscape. Eleven sections, organized geographically by location, come complete with short introductions by the artist, noting key routes and impressions, and illustrated by Ordnance Survey map openers. Each section features important local heritage sites, whether Neolithic settlements such as Maes Howe in Orkney, standing stones such as Stonehenge in Wiltshire, mountains of special geological interest such as the Three Peaks in Yorkshire, or locations of particular mystery and beauty such as Silbury Hill, the oldest and tallest artificial mound in Europe.
Written notes, archaeological scans and contour maps are often incorporated into Hughess aquacryl, acrylic, gouache and tempera artworks; notebook spreads, containing exquisite drawings and paintings made on the spot, are also on display here. Pull quotes throughout consist of evocative extracts from the artists diaries and notes, shedding light on the mood a Please click here to ask a question
