Catbells from Friars Crag

Catbells and Friars Crag painted in pastel
The Lakes are turning into a real bonnie picture, with the sun out, the fells look like they are coated with warm shades of velvet. With the sun lower at this time you get great shadows showing the shapely contours of mountain ridges. Much better for budding artist to paint. Canadian geese are still flying low over the lake, hooting loudly to each other as they fly by.
Friars Crag is one of my favourite outside painting locations and I've painted here may times under the big tree.
