Ian Burdall

I paint in oils and use charcoal and pastels. My subject matter is usually inspired by the east coast between The Humber and the Tees. I like to depict the more industrial scenery and the people that made it work.

Venue: Museum Apartment. Above the Staithes Museum.

Medium: Oils charcoal Pastels
