This drawing features the gritstone crags known as Windgather Rocks, which lie above Taxal Edge on the Derbyshire–Cheshire border in the Peak District National Park. A lone rock climber has reached the summit and is looking over the valley towards the wind turbines in the distance. A cyclist approaching the brow of the hill is about to freewheel down the other side. In this piece I wanted to capture the feeling of freedom we get from being out in open country. Whether it is whooshing down a road on a bike, or seeing the landscape open up in front of you from at the summit of a hill.
