TITLE “Beach Approach Dunstanburgh Castle ” Northumberland.

MEDIUM An original charcoal and chalk drawing

It was a cool August day in Northumberland. We packed our lunch and drove to Dunstanburgh Golf Club and parked on the roadside just before you get to the club. These parking spaces are limited so it’s worth getting there as early as possible.

We made our way across the sand dunes and walked onto the beach. What an amazing view you get of Dunstanburgh Castle, it’s an apsolutely stunning beach and scenery. It really does take your breath away and make you feel alive.

I walked bare foot along the shore line towards to castle for a closer look. Other people were there walking dogs and flying kites on the beach. My kids and husband were body boarding in the sea, trying to catch the perfect wave. These days and memories are always so special.

I created this view in charcoal first, then created it in colour with oil pastels. This version has so much atmosphere due to it being in black and white.

The Process:-

Drawing on my degree in Fine Art painting and drawing, I create a charcoal drawing first, then a colourful oil pastel painting of the same scene. I then use both of these to create the felt landscape  out of wool and other materials. I find creating the scene in oil pastel first helps to give my felt landscapes more of a painterly feel.
