Road to Foxup by Glenn Marshall


Available to buy on…

This is a gated road leading to one of the more hidden dales. We were staying in Kettlewell and deliberately chose to try and find some more unusual places in the dales. Foxup is a lovely little place with an old bridge that is waiting to be painted at another time!
This 30 × 22″ Watercolour was done on Saunders Waterford 140lb NOT surface paper with Windsor & Newton artists paints.


dales, moonlight, roads, yorkshire

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.

    Like the depth in this one. With the puddles of water and overall blues you can feel the damp wetness of this midmorning.

    Instant fav, you have created great atmosphere here as you so with all your paintings. Id be very interested to know what colours you used for this and your other paintings as you create wonderful light in them. Did you use prussian blue for this ?…anna : )

  • Hi Anna,
    Thanks for your comment.
    I use only transparent colours so no siennas or ochres. My equivalent for prussian blue is W & N Antwerp Blue. This is a transparent colour and not quite as overpowering as prussian. I usually add a slight touch of paynes grey to give it a bit of body.

    Gorgeous – you have a way with light and shadows.

  • Hi Lynn. Thanks for your comments.I enjoy the challenge of working with a very limited palette to produce a painting.Moonlight always seems to add an air of mystery to the most mundane of subjects.
