Ashley Jackson – The Yorkshire Artist contains a collection of paintings that have been personally chosen by the artist to bring together his personal memories and intimate reflections of the emotions and atmosphere that he has captured in each watercolour painting.

As he explains, ‘All artists paint what inspires them, what allows them to capture what they see with their eyes with their hands and heart. We all have differing inspirations, mediums and connections with our subject – mine is the Yorkshire Moors.’

From the open moorland of Marsden Moor to the inhabited landscape of Whitby, this book brims with what Ashley does best; capturing the atmospheric skies and drama of the landscape. As Ashley explains, ‘I have strived throughout my life to witness and portray every mood swing of nature as she takes a stand against all that the elements throw at her, whether that be rain, wind, snow or fire' .

You will truly find Ashley Jackson and his ‘Yorkshire Mistress’, as he calls the Yorkshire landscape, laid bare in these stunning paintings

 Ashley Jackson Gallery is exclusively the only establishment where you will be able to purchase a signed copy of the book.

A Brief review;  I have really enjoyed it & will continue to do so. It's one for picking up, looking in detail at, experiencing the artist's view of his 'Mistress' subject, marvelling at his skill with brush & paint, then putting it down, satisfied that you have quenched your thirst for now at this portrayal of a magical County.
