Father's day will soon be upon us and the same question raises its head - What do we give them....?
It's a difficult one to answer as there is no one size fits all gift but we hope that we have a few ideas that will make him happy. For those that enjoy their morning cuppa we have the special edition bone china beaker, if he likes to read about lives and the how and why then we have the biography "An Artist's Life", whereas "My Yorkshire Sketchbook" is more of a pocket guide to Ashley's painting locations around Yorkshire and the Dales making it a useable book out on location.
Ashley Jackson prints come in all shapes, sizes , prices and locations from the 'about to rain' , 'been raining' and 'finished raining' skies each captures not only the landscape but the very essence of the day as if you were stood on the moor with your feet firmly placed on the stoney path.
For those who would like to give watercolour painting a try "Successful watercolour painting" is an informative, easy to follow book on techniques, whilst tuition is also available online nothing beats painting with the man himself, with paint days for 2014 now available to book.
If you are still unsure Gift vouchers are available to download and print off right up to the moment you present them starting from £10.00.
I hope this has provided some assistance to the dilemma
As an exclusive to the gallery all books are signed with a small sketch by the artist in the front pages.
Ashley will be present in the Gallery on the 8th June should you wish to call and have a chat
