The Fine Art of reproducing Fine Art

Mountain Ash, Fairbrook

I have painted and sketched in Fairbrook Valley many times since I discovered it over thirty years ago. I think it has played a part in every exhibition I have had since I first saw it. Fairbrook meanders and falls through the stunning heather moorland starting high up on Kinder Scout in Derbyshire.

I can find a subject almost every few yards along its path. Seal Edge and Fairbrook Naze always provide a dramatic distance. This painting shows Seal Edge at over 600 metres above sea level catching the light, with mountain ash and silver birch trees lining Fairbrook as it makes its way down the valley.

The water is always beautifully clear here and was always a favourite picnic spot for us when our children were young. There were never many people there and they used to love damming up the stream and paddling in the clear peat coloured water.
