“The landscape of Yorkshire is a true inspiration for me. There are paintings of landscapes that I have visited including scenes around the Yorkshire Dales and some of my favourite views such as Almscliff Craggs.

“I have chosen them to show the conderful contrats this county has to offer.”

His style is a mix of strong rich colours and quirky humour.

Mark is producing 10 new original paintings for the ‘A Good View’ exhibition and will be joined by Neville Fleetwood of Clifton, a member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, Halifax watercolour artist Paul Talbot-Greaves, Helen Cassidy and Emily Mugridge.

Gallery owner Steven Lord said: “Landscape art is quite possibly the most popular genre of art exhibited in commercial galleries today.”

The exhibition runs until July 13.
