Following a meeting yesterday with Niccola Swan and Duncan Ault of the Burley Community Trust, Ian is now stepping up progress on a painting of Burley in Wharfedale done in the style of Yorkshire. Duncan first discussed the commission over a year ago and plenty of research and planning had since gone into it.
The work will be donated to the Trust and limited edition prints will be available. The Trust has many ideas on how to promote it and want to involve the village as much as possible.
Ian will be setting up shop in the library once week and painting live.
We all want contributions in what should be included and it will be a great opportunity to see the painting take shape.
The first lines and images have been drawn for you to take a look now.
