Gail Brodholt visited the Lake District before Christmas, staying in Ambleside, her linocut is called ‘A Winter’s Tale’
The commissioned work portrays what she calls a “fairly normal, ordinary road” her husband Jim drove down each day of her stay between Windermere and Kendal, the A591 approaching Ings.
“We visited lots of places, when I shouted stop and jumped out with my sketchbook and camera. I kept coming back to that stretch of road, with its dry-stone walls and fields. Most of the big landscapes have been done before, and I like the way roads open up the landscape.”
“I was really delighted to be approached, and a little surprised to be selected as my work is largely about London. This was a major opportunity to do something a bit different.”
Gail was chosen through links with the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers.
