Post 7. Paintings from Photos by Pete Lapish.

Ghaistrills Strid above Grassington Wharfedale.

The composition is below the turbulent waters of the strid looking downstream towards the village.

The various verticals and horizontals are posing as a barrier or gate down to the riverside.  This is the principal focus of attention. Old stone walls and the footpath walked into the turf by countless visitors together lead the eye to the stile in the corner of the field.  This is the second focal point.  The bare trees and bushes create a unifying factor.  There is Rosemary in red jacket and hat creating action whilst climbing the stile and then onward into the next field.
