Sierra de Guara

The Sierra de Guara Series is the product of having fallen in love with the Sierra de Guara. The Sierra da Guara is the Spanish Canyon area, in northern Spain. I visited a number of times over the years. My response has always been the same for me – awe, wonder, huge respect for this environment and a fascination for its long history. The landscape is raw, primordial, and forever changing. With sketchbook, pastels and pencils, I would walk the area stopping to draw, record its ever-changing colour chemistry, its devolving geology and its history found carved and painted on its rock. Back in the studio it was the qualities reduction relief made possible – bold rendering and colour glamour.
