Gordon has painted Nepal's Eight Highest Mountains for the 'Drawn to the Mountains' Exhibition taking place throughout October/November in our new gallery space 'Up the Stairs' above Cherrydidi Keswick.
Nepal's Eight Highest Mountains - Gordon says 'While working in Nepal I managed to paint, sketch and photograph many parts of the Himalaya. If you look at the ten highest mountains in the world eight of them are in Nepal. I had painted, or sketched, all of them. During Lockdown I decided to take all of my sketchbooks and work up a painting of each of them. This is the collection'.
All eight images are painted with acrylic on board, except Annapurna 1 which is on canvas. All pictures measure 60x60cms and come in an off-white 3" wooden frame.
