Last of the Frost in Selworthy Combe Summary

30" x 20"  Unframed  on canvas stretcher 

Frost lingering in the shadows at the start of a glorious cold autumn day in Selworthy Combe.  Just visible amongst the silver birches at the centre of the picture is Lady Acland's Hut, a woodland refuge built by Sir Thomas Acland for his wife in the 19th century.  Almost everywhere in this broad panorama is now owned by The National Trust, including the wooded Horner Valley in the middleground & the distant slopes of the high moor& Porlock Hill.



David Jessup sold his first picture - a small scraperboard drawing - aged 14.

Years later, David took time out from his job as a production controller at the Clarks factory in Minehead - unable to stand or walk after an operation, he picked up his oil paints once more. When the factory closed in 1982, David and his family moved to a remote miners cottage where they established the family business Brendon Hill Crafts, combining his wife Lizs preserves and his own artwork.

David prefers to produce large oil paintings on medium grain stretched canvas, making use of sheer magnitude to transport the viewer to the scene.  Referring to compositional sketches captured on site, David works in his home studio.

In his alter ego as an illustrator, David also turns to nature as a subject, producing watercolours and drawings for postcards and prints for clients like the National Trust and The Lost Gardens of Heligan.
