Les Packham

Yorkshire is a fascinating and diverse county and its topography provides many inspiring vistas for the landscape artist. This book portrays the Yorkshire landscape through the eyes of one of the county’s most versatile and best known watercolourists. From the Pennines to the coast, over the North Yorkshire Moors and through the Wolds to the industrial south of the region, this book encompasses everything to please lovers of this remarkable county. The book accompanies the exhibition of the same name. The book includes large towns and cities such as Leeds, York, Huddersfield, Sheffield, coastal towns and villages such as Bridlington, Staithes and Whitby, and also includes a selection of smaller places, such as Haworth, home of the Bront?s.

A new exhibition by celebrated artist Les Packham explores the fascinating and diverse county of Yorkshire through the medium of watercolour. Seen through the eyes of one of the county’s best known and most versatile watercolourists, Yorkshire in Watercolour is a full portrayal of the Yorkshire landscape from the Pennines to the coast, over the North Yorkshire Moors and through the Wolds to the industrial south of the region. With the inclusion of many paintings that have never been exhibited before, Yorkshire in Watercolour is, above all, a celebration of the remarkable topography of the county of Yorkshire.

The exhibition is accompanied by a book of the same title. Published by Northern Arts Publications, an imprint of Jeremy Mills Publishing, the book includes all the paintings from the exhibition and a note from the artist on each one. Produced in full colour, the book is available in both paperback and hardback editions, as well as a very special, hand bound edition that is signed by Les Packham and includes an exclusive, limited edition print of the Strid at Bolton Abbey.
