A different perspective: The south side

On Friday I made a trip to Humberston in Lincolnshire specifically to see the views of  Spurn Point from the south bank of the Humber and I was not disappointed.

To my dismay I realised I had left my watercolour paints on the table at home but luckily I had my pastels with me to work with these gave a heavier representation of the scene than I would have liked.

The views across the Humber mouth were incredible, wide open with plenty of points of interest. I tried to capture the dramatic rain clouds touching the land as it traveled along the north bank towards Spurn.

The lighthouse at spurn could be clearly seen and it appeared so close, both the forts in the water on either side of the river mouth looked spectacular, gave a sense of perspective and heightening the drama of the landscape.

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.
