253 - AKELD FROM AKELD HILL - DAVE EDWARDS - ACRYLIC - 2009 by 


This acrylic painting is loosely based on a photograph of Akeld from Akeld Hill (Northumberland, England), taken by a friend of mine who gave me permission to use his photo.

    I think you’re venturing into something a touch different Dave. I like the landscape theme and the red complimenting the greens – clever!

  • As you know, acrylics are still something I am trying to grasp, but this isn’t too bad I suppose. I do find though that the paint seems to fluctuate (I swallowed a dictionary) between watery and treacly at times … even on the same brushful..

    It’s wonderful dave..
    I get a warm feeling from this one..it’s a bit like a cosy bright blanket that mother nature has provided.

    well done!!

  • Conniecrayon likened this to “a warm,cosy velvet duvet” and you liken it to “a cosy bright blanket.” I know exactly what you both mean. I do tend to turn harsh bleak landscapes into something cuddly :) Thanks both of you … we think alike.

    Doing great with the acrylics Dave! In the unforgettable Dave Edwards style.

  • Thanks Andrea, you modest (in an Ozzie sort of way) lady (see my reply to your Journal for that joke to make sense).

    Lovely work Dave. It reminds me of a series of colourful linear-patterned deep pile rugs all overlapping each other to create a wonderful landscape.

  • Tee hee … “a warm,cosy velvet duvet,” “a cosy bright blanket” and now “deep pile rugs.” I’ve obviously achieved the effect I was aiming at.

    You sure have. Well done.

  • All this talk of blankets, rugs and velvet duvets has made me sleepy … goodnight!
