Painting at Skeffling Clays

Today I took a picnic and my painting kit down to the remote Skeffling Clays, one of the last access point to the Humber before Spurn Point.

Working on top of the Micra bonnet

The panorama there is vast and the sky is wide open and dramatic. The Grimsby skyline add a sense of scale and focus with the dock cranes, Italianate tower and high rise flats. These all faded in and out of view as the elements slowly moved across, the horixon line changing in colour from dark violet to soft violets and blue greys.

In mid flow

There were moody low rain clouds sweeping across the south bank I was trying to capture.

Looking towards Immingham

The light over Spurn Point was also striking with a pinky orange glow appearing on the horizon.

Capturing the moment

I will be back.


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.
