Nithering Almscliffe : Acrylic on box canvas

‘Nithering Amscliffe’ (2012)

In February 2012 it was nithering up on Almscliffe Crag. Nither is a northern English term which means to shiver. Weatherman often use the term in winter to describe a bitter wind. I had good fun researching this image. I took the car up as far as I could go and slid most of the way down. But not before I’d managed to take some photos and sketches! Almscliffe is a small outcrop of rocks, and surrounding area, near Harrogate Yorkshire.

This painting won the Bi Annual Harrogate Mercer Art Gallery Open Art Competition. Find out more.
