Hill gods

A monotype worked in several layers of gouache on Arches paper. The design is loosely based on a picture of an old turf cutting which is said to represent deities. It is from the Gog Magog Hills – an area steeped in tales of mysterious appearances, buried giants and ghosts. (The name ‘hills’ is slightly misleading as they are not very high: just definitely above the flat plain and therefore giving a commanding view.)

Artwork is 7.5×5.5 inches (19×14 cm).

Love looking at art. Love messing with colour.

  1. I am reminded of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow with this piece. Not an orange jack-o-lantern for a head, but definitely a wonderful blue one here. Love the movement and whimsicality of this piece.
