Stepping stones

I've been to these magical stepping stones in Summer but not in Winter but it felt like Spring, it really was a perfect painting spot, the light was clear with soft shadows, the stream was trickling by and we were out of a cool wind and hardly anybody came by just a few Herdwick sheep glanced and wondered what we were up to.

I'm using my trusted paper stretcher but with pastel paper and watercolour applied first loosely and then the lights brought out with pastels, I really enjoyed doing this little piece it does make a difference if you feel relaxed and inspired when painting, my group of intrepid artists have been a real joy this week.
