Merry Christmas and a happy & prosperous 2016 to all members and friends of York Art Society
|Call of the Light|
Once again thanks to Julie Lightburn for providing this year's Christmas picture - a stunning international urban landscape.
Julie also provided a short commentary on the creative process behind the image
"I used the “Paint my Photograph” website to look for inspiration for my 2015 Christmas card. I found a striking photograph of an avenue of trees by Moscow photographer Viacheslav and immediately wanted to paint it ... with a few additions. The distant ‘Cathedral’ is in fact the chapel at the National Trust property, Clumber Park, while the street lights are a local touch – Catherine’s lamp, at Holy Trinity Church, Stockton-on-the-Forest."
