Went to Clitheroe Castle today to see Chris Mcloughlin's inspiring exhibition - A GRAND PERSPECTIVE. He is an en plein air artist hero of mine.....and this body of work has been inspired by the Forest of Bowland and surrounding areas. The views from the Castle were awesome ....it was a blustery, stormy day and on top of the battlements it was literally breathtaking. The 'views' inside the Steward's Gallery were equally breathtaking.... Chris's work is rich and luscious and he can capture the expansive beauty of a place in a few bold and beautiful brushstrokes. If you can get to see his work you will not be disappointed! His exhibition is until 11th July ....11am and 4pm daily ..... and the views from the castle and the surrounding walks and gardens are beautiful too.
