Skeffling Clays

I drove to a new viewing site today with great excitment as I thought I had visited them all already! This one is at Skeffling, I tiny village just befor Easington and Spurn Point. There is a remote viewing area for The Humber Estuary European Marine Site. The Humber Estuary is one of the most important estuaries in Europe for wildlife and therefore protected.

The views from here are emense and spectacular. The visiblility is clear from the curve of Spurn Point and lighthouse, the windmills in the distance on the southbank, Grimsby Tower and docks, Hull, the flame of Saltend chimney and the gas terminal at Easington. The vastness of this panorama gives a fisheye lens illusion to the view which I tried to capture in these charcoal sketches I did there.

About Annemarie Tickle

I am a Lecturer in Textiles at Hull School of Art and Design. As a visual artist I am interested in atmospheric conditions and events and how the scale of nature makes mans mark on the landscape look insignificant. I enjoy the act of doing and getting my hands dirty so my practice is intensly process led. I use a wide range of media but am particular interested in dying techniques.
