Cabin fever got the better of me today. Sometimes when you look out of the window, nothing inspires the artistic eye. So with pochade box and camera off I went to find inspiration and I wasn't coming home without it. I Sat on a stone beside Derwentwater and looked. Now what you see above of course came when I was off back home! But I did find it, nothing grand just a quick hour gazing at the fells and crags, Swallows and Dippers playing beside the waters edge and a couple of Swans that wanted to be painted, I had other ideas. I'm always wary of these beautiful birds. But reading yesterday about a fellow American artist who had to cope with a rattle snake we in the Lakes have nothing to worry about.
This zing of light got me thinking of a film? ET
The Pochade comes apart, I find working this way easier.
