Painted in 2018 for 'Craggs & Fells' - a solo exhibition at Heart Gallery, Hebden Bridge. Lumb Bank was the home of Ted Hughes. It sits below Slack and Heptonstall, on a steep sided hill that drops down to Colden water. The white arch of the house is often striking - catching the sun, while the deep valley below remains shaded and dark. Elmet is from 'The Remains of Elmet' (1979), a volume of poems evoked by the landscape (Elmet was an ancient name for the West Riding).
