George Meredith (1828-1909)

Julia Entwistle – Romantic Painter – ‘I was looking for a suitable title for my paintings in my forthcoming exhibition and realised that the majority of my landscapes are bathed in half-light.

This soft, subdued light of early dawn or dusk which partially obscures the landscape, has that ethereal, haunting quality of romanticism that lends itself to the northern landscape.  Trees and buildings can also take on a eerie shape which may look a little spooky but at the same time transforming themselves into something slightly abstract.  Maybe that is what attracted me to this dimmed, greyish light, the feeling you get, of being transported to an almost ‘other-worldly’ realm.’
