The painting was finally completed in November 2020 with a number of minor changes from the original drawing prepared in 2019 and is today formally released in print form. It is executed in oils on canvas and is the second release in the planned trio of Burley, Otley and Ilkley.
The Otley painting’s focal point is the Jubilee clock tower at the centre with the town crier. All major landmarks within this richly historical town with it’s well preserved architecture are given Ian’s distinctive expressionist treatment to great abstract effect.
