Gilbert Lewis Creighton (1918 - 1996) oil on board painting of sheep on the North Yorkshire Moors. One of three available. Signed to the lower right.

About the artist:
Lewis Creighton was born in Yorkshire in 1918. He grew up in the small village of Appleton-le-Moors, situated on the southern edge of the North York Moors National Park.
Creighton went on to serve in World War 2 as a Spitfire pilot, taking part in the famous Battle of Britain. After his service, he later became a full-time artist.

His handling of light and shadow and his typically impasto style of oil painting gives his work a remarkable sense of depth and texture. This technique allowed Creighton to perfectly capture the rugged grace of the North York Moors.

His work is widely collected and his work is represented in the Scarborough Art Gallery.
