Yorkshire Sculpture Park mixed media landscape painting by Polly Jones

Yorkshire Sculpture Park by Polly Jones
I painted this from a photograph I took at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park summer before last in England. I normally don't paint from photographs but this image was somehow fresh in my mind's eye and I really enjoyed painting a landscape for a change.  We saw some incredible sculptures while there.  Especially memorable was work by Anish Kapoor.  They don't translate so well in photographs, but in person I was blown away.  Staring into it made me lose my sense of time and scale, hard to describe. 

11" by 14" acrylic and mixed media collage on gallery wrapped canvas.  For sale in my etsy store here.
