Swallows and Amazons artist style

For the Watercolour weekend in Keswick we had mixed weather a little cloud (Cobalt and Burnt Umber), a chilly wind (Hot Chocolate for warming the hands) and Sunshine and warm Blue skies( Cobalt and Cerulean) and adventure!! This been in the form of an in pronto ride on a rowing boat, it felt the perfect way for intrepid artists to cross Derwentwater with their watercolours clutched at hand. The launch company in Keswick jumped in to help when we could not get onto the full boat and so offered to row us across the lake, what service this is, and what a flutter to the heart it gave.

Here is the strong rower.

A perfect painting spot away from the crowds, with just Geese, Ducks and a Heron for company

Watercolour painted Sunday 17th April looking down Derwentwater from Portinscale.
