Outdoor Weekend watercolour

I've wanted to walk round this lake for ages, so with threatening skies and freezing cold northerly winds,  a perfect time! Leaving the car at Skelwith Force and walking beside the gushing falls towards the open river. It was flat all the way, with a few prams and mountain bikes for company. What a lovely surprise, it's great going somewhere new and exploring. Today was not the day for painting outdoors, it seemed colder than in the Alps. But using the famous words of a certain actor 'I'll be back' On hopefully a warmer sunny day. For the outdoor artist, it's perfect, 15 minute walk and A Bench with a glorious view over Elterwater towards the Langdales.

Cara Jane, continui a proporre uscite in luoghi splendidi, di grande suggestione, sono sicuro che i tuoi allievi ti seguiranno con gioia e con bella soddisfazione. E in estate ritornerai sul lago d'Iseo e poi in Toscana... beata te!
Ciao e buon lavoro. Luigi.
