Colmer’s Hill is such an iconic local landmark, rising above Symondsbury, just west of Bridport, and I love to paint different versions, from representational to more abstract, graphic designs.
When thinking of a project for ‘Identity’ for Lyme Regis ArtsFest 2016, I was surprised to discover that I had painted over 50 different versions of Colmer’s Hill, using a variety of media, including soft pastel, acrylic ink, watercolour, mixed media and oils. These ‘stamps’ give a snapshot of all my paintings to date.
I mounted prints of each of my 53 versions of Colmer’s Hill on 18mm thick mdf painted black – the size of the blocks are 10.5 x 7.5cm. The numbers on the ‘stamps’ represent the order in which they were painted.
The blocks can either be mounted on the wall singly or in a group (there is double-sided tape on the reverse), or they can be free standing on a mantlepiece or shelf. They make an unusual gift for someone who loves Colmer’s Hill. Prices are £7 each for the 10.5 x 7.5cm blocks (or 2 for £13); the square 10.5 x 10.5cm Four Seasons blocks are £8 each of 2 for £15.
I also have 40cm x 30cm mounted prints of a selection of my Colmer’s Hill images: Colmer’s Hill Stamp Collection 1 and 2, each featuring 25 different ‘stamp’ images. These are £30 each, plus £4 P&P.
