Katharine Holmes

Katharine Holmes is best known for her paintings and drawings of her native Yorkshire landscape. She paints and draws outside in all weathers and in her Malham studio. Beyond home and the familiar she currently paints the wilder fringes of Britain and Ireland and especially the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

Through working in the landscape she attempts to convey the atmosphere of particular places and how it feels to be there. Surrounded by sketches and paintings completed outside back in the studio she slowly, sometimes over months or years develops large acrylic or oil paintings on canvas.
