COAST TO MOUNTAINS
PAINTINGS by PHILIPPA HEADLEY
29th September – 13th December
I have spent many years hiking in the Lakeland Fells and walking along the Jurassic Coast. Whether I’m viewing a precipitous cliff top from the sea or gazing at a fell yet to be climbed I find wonderful opportunities to paint. This everchanging environment, eroded by weather over centuries or changed daily by the tides, evokes many emotions.
This series of paintings, of places where the worlds of coast and mountains intertwine, is my expression of the persistent pull I feel to be part of the landscape, to play at the water’s edge, walk through the mountains or simply take a quiet moment with my sketchbook and capture images of these interactions to convey ways we react to nature.
