/ Mountain painters
I'm not a fan but Ginger Cain? http://www.mountainart.co.uk/index.php
And of course Cezanne! http://www.allartclassic.com/pictures_zoom.php?p_number=26&p=&number=CEP025
Jamie Hageman and Ginger Cain are too literal for my taste. Art should not be just tracing over photos but communicating what photos can't capture. I'm sure Cezanne would have done a brilliant job if he had endured a cold mountain bivy but like most artists he would have just viewed them as backdrop to a more immediate foreground.
Yes, that's more like it!
If Van Gogh had been up there in winter it might have looked a bit like this:
A lot of Michael Stuart Green's work is more representational, but his digital prints (made by drawing on a tablet) of Glen Shiel might be of interest: http://www.michaelstuartgreen.com/gallery.php?id=12&view_image=121
And why has no one mentioned John Redhead?
You just have!
Kyffin Williams was an outstanding Welsh landscape painter whose work is often of Snowdonia.
My personal favourite is James Wheeler, whose specialty is Pennine landscapes in a semi-abstract style, though I have seen a few of his featuring Skye.
And don't forget Bill Peascod.
I really like some of Kyffin Williams work (youll need deep pockets to get an original these days). Less mountainous, more lived in.
As an act of blatant self-promotion, I actually paint the mountains of Scotland and Wales myself, in watercolour:
Mine was an impulse buy in the Y capel gallery/tourist information in Llangollen. They have some really nice Welsh mountain landscapes, though not always Malcolm Edwards stuff
I have a few by local (Leek) landscape artist David Hunt, including one of Hen Cloud, but maybe Gareth Buxton is more what you are looking for. Acrylics, almost abstract, but very atmospheric of moorland tops and edges:
We have one of a storm on Curbar Edge, with a contrasting Dave Butcher photograph of a storm approaching the Curbar millstones - similar subject but dissimiliar in every other way.
I like those - a woman called Diane Metcalfe does something similar, with plenty of weather in her paintings: http://www.dianemetcalfe.co.uk/di_metcalfe_painting603.htm
As far as I'm aware you can still get interest free loans to buy original art, 10 months to pay it off.
Kevin S -just remembered that my mate cragtyke has got a brilliant print of the Pass on his wall. It's by a painter called William Selwyn.
Howard Somervell was pretty useful, a sort of John Sell Cotman in the Himalaya.
If you're going to have that then we might as well have a spot of Paul Bonner:
I think I met him last time I camped in the Ogwen Valley
Great. I know him a bit, really nice guy. Lives in Denmark now; you can see the Lakes in much of his work, a favourite haunt years ago.
ah. I meant the guy in the painting ;)
I was wondering, he never goes to Wales!
I'm sure Cezanne would have done a brilliant job if he had endured a cold mountain bivy but like most artists he would have just viewed them as backdrop to a more immediate foreground.
Not at all - his series of paintings of Mt St Victoire are widely considered as the starting point for abstract art
some of his work here: www.mountainpaintings.org/
Or here, even:
Thanks for that; I'd not seen the non-Asia ones.
Julian Cooper's work is brilliant. I'm yet to find a modern artist of his caliber. The mountains really jump out at you yet the detail is brilliant.
