David Thorpe is a new favourite artist of mine. I stumbled on him only because Richard McNeace The Book Rep showed me his copy of the book. The image above, is only a small taster - the rest of his work is even more incredible but the quality of my scans didn't seem to do them justice so I left them out. Have a look at some more of his images at his London gallery's website.
His paintings remind me of Caspar David Friedrich - I'm pretty sure this will have been pointed out before.
