Dramatic clouds burst into the sky in this Northumberland inspired landscape.
Dorset born Paul West is a landscape painter traditionally inspired by the rugged countryside of his native county. However, a visit to Northumberland in the early 90s came like "a thunder bolt of inspiration" to the artist resulting in annual pilgrimages to the region to capture the furrowed horizons, imposing skies, mysterious woodlands and solitary trees that inspire his creativity.
Paul West has a BA in Graphic Design and is represented by Forest Gallery in Petworth. His work is exhibited widely at fairs throughout London and exhibitions in Northumberland and Brighton. Paul's work inspired Kate Humble's book Thinking On My Feet (2018).
