Judith Yarrow's work is a physical exploration of the way different media interact with varying surfaces and with each other. For 'Climbing Cader Idris on Christmas Eve' Yarrow has used thin layers of tissue paper, hessian and pastel in addition to acrylic paint, to create several contrasting tones and textures to build up her recollection of the landscape.
Her landscape painting is inspired by the walking she does in remote areas: 'I like looking down from high mountains, and cliff tops that give you space and height and views of ridges and valleys or far horizons.' Weather, unusual light conditions, and seasonality are reccurring themes in her practice.
