The Swallows were dipping

Morning showers cleared a trip on a open topped bus and a perfect Lakeland landscape awaits. There was no breeze so pure and calm reflections of Loughrigg and the islands on Rydal water were waiting to be captured, the swallows were dipping around the beautiful waterlilies and the ducks were keeping a watch to check that no sandwiches were been eaten. I decided on a palette of Cobalt Blue, Burnt and Raw Sienna, Transluscent Yellow and a touch of Permenant Rose and the wet in wet technique hoping to apply a one wash approach, my Ken Bromley stretcher and Arches paper worked a treat.

I had a great time with some excellent like minded people on a 4 day course painting in and around Grasmere and Rydal water in sept'
I will take this opportunity to thank you one and all for sharing the days and evenings with me.

I will take this chance to send my thanks to our hostess and tutor Jane for all the help and encouragment with each challenge in each place and picture that was painted not just by me but by each of us there well done to everyone.
