Day Three. Well today I wanted to be inspired by snow capped mountains and I also wanted to paint or sketch on site, again off I went with Puffa jacket, sketch pad etc, I was unsure of what to paint, which can be be a bit worrying but once out I soon became inspired, Clough Head is about 4 miles from Keswick and is one of those mountains that looks fabulous with snow, it seems to make it appear bigger for some reason!!I stood in snow and hail showers waiting for a glimpse of light, and suddenly an opening in the clouds and that was it, 2 or 3 minutes!!! Again a watercolour on Arches 140lb paper and a limited palette of Winsor Blue, Ultramarine, Permanent Rose, Burnt Sienna and Indian Yellow. I left the foreground until last and nearly popped snow in but I'm pleased I didn't and kept it to as the day was. I have a friend who's surname is 'Clough' and always think this is his mountain!! You can often see Para-gliders taking flight from it's lower fell.
