‘Bringing in the Bales’
This artwork was created for a local art festival competition. It was for the black and white category and it won 1st prize in its category. The image was captured on a visit to Newby hall near Ripon during the annual tractor festival.
This farming artwork is of two farmers conversing and taking a well deserved break after finishing loading the bales onto the trailer. The original image was taken during the tractor festival in Ripon Yorkshire.
Farming techniques have changed considerably over the years. Alison attends local agricultural events to sketch and photograph the more traditional methods. Alison grew up surrounded by farming, which is where she gets some of her inspiration.
