Nr. Derwent Water
8 x 10 Oil/Linen Panel
A year or so ago I checked into a lovely vegetarian hotel called Lancrigg Hotel near Grasmere in the Lake District. It was January! I was there for five days and I went out and did a lot of pastels and took loads of photos, some of them amazing, some of them so misty and dark that I couldn’t use them!! It was cold and glorious. On the fifth day of getting absolutely soaked and almost washed away near Derwent Water, I decided it was time to move on to my friend’s house in Scotland! I have included a link to her website. Jasmin is an amazing landscape/garden designer.

Another one finally finished. I so wish my work would photograph better. In reality there are so many nuances which you just can’t see. Still here it is. A Lake District meadow. I do love that area.
I have almost finished my pieces for the museum, but still working on the Howard Mandville pieces. Thanks so much for all your kind comments.

This was the first painting I did from pastels and photos when travelling in the UK in 2007. The larger piece (see first posting) was created from this piece.

My first post! I painted this from pastel sketches and photographs I took during my trip last year. I so love this area and hope to return soon.
