Jubilee celebrations in Keswick

Keswick had a great Jubilee weekend, appropriate coloured boats moored on the foreshore, a virtual living room at Friars Crag, local bands played all afternoon in the busy square with plenty of food stalls and smells to entice the busy crowds. A duck race along the river and a beacon lit on Catbells to finish the day.

The sun didn't shine much but it didn't rain either

With the large screen in the square nothing was missed and the bands played on.

With my own birthday celebrations to enjoy and plenty of cream cakes, scones and finger sandwiches it's been a lovely long weekend.

'Feeding time' painted in watercolours seemed a suitable painting to have a go at, I'm going to have another go on a larger scale and may even try it in Oils.

Love the painting, it's beautiful, what a wonderful part of the world you live, I often visit the Lake District and should paint more of the landscapes I love, thank you for the inspiration
