I've spent most of the day getting ready to paint, with an exhibition in December the pressure is on. So finally sitting down with paper and pencil ready to go, I' didn't know what to paint. It's rained most of the day in fact all week!so I haven't been able to get out and feel inspired by all those wonderful Autumn hues. So at 3,30 finally gave in to a non painting day, and decided to make a 'Shepherds pie' and so with hat, gloves and waterproof jacket, off I walked to the Butcher's. We can see Skiddaw from the house and walking down the drive wow! The mist was breaking open and there on the top was a tiny patch of snow. I suddenly felt inspired. Must now decide where to go tomorrow.
