Not at one with the painting today, maybe it's the scene, Watendlath is a beautiful if twee hamlet in the Lakes, about 6 miles up a very windy tiny road from Keswick. Fantastic flapjack and Gingerbread is sold at the tiny tea room, Prince Charles opened the little packhorse bridge, even wild ponies and pet pigs try to pinch walkers sandwiches. It really is a lovely place to spend some time. Maybe it's the Rome thing, and hearing still about people marooned in far flung places, listening to the radio about the Ark Royal going to the rescue brought a tear to the eye!!Will give myself a gentle prod with my paint brush and hope to produce something wonderful in the next couple of days.
