Whilst doing A Levels at school I did a lot of work using pastels. Producing a series of large landscapes depicting lonely moorland roads beneath imposing skies. Since then though, I have largely ignored the medium. This work, the first I have done in pastel since school, is based on a sketch made in the Tyne Valley near Prudhoe. An attempt to capture something of the oppressiveness in the atmosphere before a late summer rainstorm.
