Ian Black

Ian is a self-taught landscape painter who revels in the varied landscapes of the Yorkshire Dales and beyond. Living in the heart of Ribblesdale with all of his subject matter on his doorstep he attempts to capture not just the landscapes but also the spirit and some of the humour of the Dales, with a keen interest in history and a background in geology these two subjects are brought out in his paintings.

Becoming more prolific, Ian has only been painting ‘seriously’ for a couple of years, and his paintings are becoming more popular.

Practising primarily in oils, the paintings are an end result of numerous sketches and field studies often with a hint of humour.
