Theodore Major – Snow at Wigan

Snow at Wigan, Theodore Major

Sometimes, your day just begins with such an explosion of joy that the remaining hours have absolutely no chance of competing! Today is such a day.

Clark Art in Hale, Cheshire posted a little video of a painting they have recently acquired by the amazing and, frankly, bonkers, Theodore Major.

For out delight and delectation, Bill Clark has filmed the painting up close so you can see the impasto technique in its full glory:

This screengrab gives you a really good idea about the technique. Just look at the way the smoke from the factory wraps itself around the chimney – honestly gives you shivers! And that use of yellow ochre – sublime!!

I’ve written quite a bit on Theo, so if you liked this one, check out these:
