Artist's Description

The starting point for this painting was the wonderful photograph of Ribblehead Viaduct by Richard Ion. What struck me about Richard’s photo is that it captured that element of unpredictability in the weather in the area: bright sunshine, rain, sleet, snow, gale force winds and fog can all be experienced on the same day, high up in ‘Three Peaks’ country in the Yorkshire Dales. I have tried to convey that unpredictable weather in my painting.

Ribblehead viaduct, built to carry the Settle to Carlisle railway line a quarter of a mile (402m) at a height of 104feet (32m) above Batty Moss, a bleak, windswept, waterlogged stretch of moorland. The 24 graceful stone arches took 4 years to build, starting in 1870. Behind the viaduct rises Whernside, one of the ‘Three Peaks’.
