Krakatoa sunsets, 1883 artworks , History c/o Science Photo Library.

Thank you to the Science photo gallery (website above) for information about the artist William Ashcroft. I love these expressive paintings documenting the dramatic sunsets over London caused by the eruption of Krakatoa. They spontaniously catch the fleeting changing light through on the spot observations.

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.
