I have contributed with some larger works available at incredible reduced prices! Here are two examples, first a summery Peak District image left from the Landmarks’ series “A Nest of Robins”, reduced from £495 to £150! The second piece a wintery seasonal image “The Path”, reduced from £495 to £175. Both are framed in a whitewashed obeche wood with generous mounts.
My Countryfile experience brought a lot of insight into how tv works, especially out on location when there is only one camera man, which necessitates various different takes to get the wide angle, the close ups, the hands (in case of studio work). I had to try and remember what I had said (or not said) many times for all the takes, quite nerve wracking, but ultimately a great learning experience!
Ellie turned out to be a wizard on my fifty year old Swedish Husqvarna, she stitched a beautiful blood red outline of the leaves picked in the woods and used for mono-printing experiments. It turned out really well and I noticed how she finished the sewing even after the camera stopped rolling!
