These stone paths known as Quaker’s Trods criss cross the North Yorkshire moors Actually the name is a bit of a mismoner as they are of more ancient lineage constructed in medieval times by the monks of the great abbies of Fountains and Reivaulx .
They were needed to transport the wool from there to the east coast coast for export to Europe.However when the Quakers came to North Yorkshire, they were very happy to use the trods to spread their simple message!

As a painter of light, legend and landscape I am indebted to the wonderful medium of watercolour which gives me the versatility to incorporate many different styles in to my work.

    I ordered this image in the form of a card and sent it to my dear friend of mine, who just so happens to be a Quaker minister. I know he’ll love it as much as I do.

    used mask or just scrapped them out..? amazing work any way,, the sun kissed leaves and twigs could not be any better.. ccheers

  • Many thanks. I used mask for the foreground grasses and fern impressions so I could be very free with the washes knowing the structure of the painting was safe.
