Ashley’s Thoughts


Holme Moss
I have often seen, whilst walking at high altitude on the moor and descending from the clouds, this soul inspiring atmosphere. What Mother Nature creates in diffused light, when this happens you are in total awe and respect of the moor.

Taken from the Isle of sky looking across at Holme Moss and the mast, you get an imposing sense of scale and atmosphere as to what the Yorkshire weather may herald when Mother nature decides.

Here is also the working sketch for watercolour painting, this is what I create at lightening speed to capture the raw landscape, the rest I hold in my head and heart for it is not only a view but an emotion I wish to recreate in my paintings. You can see Holme Moss by virtue of the iconic radio transmitter.
