“Scafell Pike and Scafell itself, the monarchs of English mountains, have so much rugged grandeur – it is such a perfect example of the wildest workings of nature-it is doubtful whether the British Isles contain anything more majestically wild”
[M. J. B. Baddeley – English Lake District, p183]
William painted this moody and dramatic scene on very smooth hot-pressed paper, which was unusual for him as he normally preferred the texture of rougher paper to work against. However, in this painting where delicate gradations of colour and tone are important, especially in the eerie sky, it seems just right.
The giclee is a very clear and crisp digital image shot onto polymer canvas, which is stretched over a wooden frame. There is no visible border, so a bold image is presented, which is particularly suited to contemporary interiors.
A slate grey shadow box frame is available, which gracefully picks up the colours of the rocks and shadows.
