Using pebbles from Ilkley Moor and grinding and crushing them to make pigment for this painting imbues the aerial view with the stuff of the place. Other natural pigment colours extracted from rock were sprinkled, poured and placed to create the colours of the heather and the bracken found there. Lines created by the man-made footpaths are seen amongst the patterns.
Flying over these moors often and seeing the patterns both human and natural is the inspiration for this textural painting.
