Blakeley Reservoir

Blakeley Reservoir is situated next to Butterley Reservoir, near Marsden and this view is from high in the hills above. I decided to do this view as a pencil sketch as I wanted to explore the detail that can be seen and to use the pencil to describe the different textures, with the manmade structure nestling comfortably within the natural landscape.

Original pencil sketch on cartridge paper, with sage green mount in a beech frame. Overall size 355 x 355mm.

£80, which includes packaging and postage within the UK, or personal delivery within 15 miles of Huddersfield.
