As we live 10 miles from the beautiful market town of Ludlow, Shropshire we see this view at all times of day and night. The early morning view is always one of my favourites with the sunlight highlighting the features of Ludlow Castle and the tower of St Lawrence Church. This view was taken from Whitcliffe Common which overlooks the town.
I used, as always, soft pastel (for the background ) and a range of pastel pencils on Artspectrum Colourfix paper. The sharpened pencils create the detail and the background is blended using polystyrene sticks to give the three-dimensional effect to the completed painting.
This artwork has been much admired on social media and is the perfect size for your wall, with the painting being 11.5 inches high and 16 inches wide - in its gold frame its dimensions are 18 inches by 22 inches.
