My first four day painting holiday at the Scafell Hotel in Borrowdale starts tomorrow. So this morning I thought I would just check that the scenery was looking good for my intrepid artists.The first stop was Surprise view with views towards Bassenthwaite and beyond, the lake was calm and beautiful.
Next stop was a walk around Stonethwaite. A lovely old hamlet full of character, white washed buildings dwarfed by towering Eagle crag, chickens running round and new born lambs with snuggling up to Mothers and best of the sound of the woodpecker.
Onto Rosthwaite and a lovely walk down to the stepping stones passing these three cuties with Glaramara showing warm Ochres and Burnt Sienna.
Finishing with a coffee at the Flock- In
.So fingers crossed this nasty cold front that is threatening to make its appearance in The Lake District
