Ashley in frame to pass on his passion for landscape
Yorkshire Watercolour artist Ashley Jackson has unveiled another unique Yorkshire landscape to be framed by Framing The Landscape, in partnership with the National Trust and sponsored by Walker Morris LLP.
Coinciding with Yorkshire Day and National Parks Week, Hardcastle Crags, above Hebden Bridge, is the site chosen for the the second installation of the majestic free standing frames following on from the launch event at Marsden Moor in May.
It is a truly a celebration of the Yorkshire landscape in a way that is hoped will capture the imagination of all ages to visit the locations, stop for a quite minute and view the landscape through it - and should you feel creative take a photograph of yourself in the frame or take along a pencil and paper to sketch what you see ....
Ashley, well known for his landscapes which often feature his beloved Yorkshire and who has starred in many television programmes such as A Brush With Ashley, said: “I have always tried to paint what brings me to
the peace of the landscape, and what makes me fall in love with her. I try to capture her soul and I’ve been trying to do so all my life.
“I wish to pass on this passion I have for Yorkshire and the landscape to inspire others to explore and enjoy all that nature has provided.
“You cannot smell the wet heather, hear the skylark as she circles to protect her eggs or feel the atmosphere change as rain approaches from a screen, all of these can only be felt by using our senses out in the great Cathedral of the open air. The frame locations are safe, accessible and near to walking trails, so this summer visit Yorkshire and make time for nature.”
