Allonby, Aigle Ghyll & Criffel

allonby-8768

Following in the footsteps of local artists Sheila Fell RA (1931-1979) and Percy Kelly (1918-1993). Above is Allonby, the subject of a number of paintings by both artists. Percy Kelly lived in Allonby from 1958 to 1970.

Below is a scene looking towards Aigle Ghyll farm and Criffel. Sheila Fell made paintings of the farm which is close to Aspatria where she was born.

    • Thanks Barbara. The processing was done in Lightroom, I find it works very well for black and white. Silver Efex Pro is good too, but I’ve not used that for some time. Enjoyed visiting these places – LS Lowry locations are next on the list, he painted at Cleator Moor which is close by.
