  • Winter Light on Kisdon Hill - pencil drawing by Peter Woolley

    Winter Light on Kisdon Hill


    Despite being one of several sketches produced in the course of developing a watercolour, the composition in this particular drawing wasn't used. If you follow the links to the watercolour version below, you can compare the two, and see the changes that were made.

    Sometimes, ideas don't always come together quite as smoothly as planned. I will often use sketches to experiment with various 'what if..' scenarios, manipulating the elements I have to play with in order to try and create the most satisfying composition that I can. In this case, almost everything was moved about, mostly to accommodate the light source, which is clearly marked on the sketch (the circles drawn into the left-hand trees represent the position of the sun). In the end, it wasn't only the sheep that got moved - I shifted the two right-hand trees into a more central position, in front of the barn.

    Kisdon Hill (which is on the Pennine Way) is located in the upper reaches of Swaledale, near the villages of Thwaite and Keld.

    Almost all watercolour paintings produced by Peter Woolley are developed from pencil
 sketches made on-site or in the studio. In the course of that development, further working sketches
 are often produced in order to explore the subject and work towards a final, satisfactory
 composition. This drawing is a unique document; if it has been used in the process of creating a finished watercolour, it may contain marks of handling or even spots of watercolour. Such marks should not considered flaws; instead, they should be thought of as an integral part of the character of the drawing. To protect
 its integrity, the artist has signed and dated it on the reverse.

    This original drawing has been produced on 160lb smooth, white paper, with a 2B graphite pencil. For drawing dimensions, please see the main information panel above. The price quoted is for the drawing to be supplied to you unframed, in protective packaging with rigid backing panel, ready to take to a framer. A quote for framed work will be provided on request.
