This is Budle Bay, Northumberland in the early morning in October; huge skies and empty beaches.
The original media for Low Tide by Kate Lycett is a combination of inks, gouache, acrylics and coloured pencil.
Kate Lycett, the artist, now lives in Hebden Bridge where she has her studio, Her textile design background is always present in the way that she paints and interprets what is around her. She sees patterns in everything; the hills adorned with houses and washing lines, rows of flower pots and stripes of brightly painted drain pipes. Lines of gold thread trace lines through the landscape, and gold leaf changes the surface of her pictures with the changing light of day. There are never people in her pictures but they’re full of life and warmth.
