Osmotherley from Rueberry Lane
Painted in watercolours
I painted this Yorkshire scene, while visiting the pretty Village of Osmotherley.
We stayed at Peelers cottage a wonderful old quaint property full of character with a gorgeous wood burning stove, a bookcase full of books and a roll top bath and a brightly lit Christmas tree, what more do you need.
A favourite walk takes you up onto the edge of the Moors with extensive views towards Roseberry topping and we even saw a glimpse of the North Sea. Passing old farm buildings made of sandstone, looking down onto Cod Beck Reservoir and then down Rueberry Lane back into the village. The afternoon light brought out the shapes of the many different shaped rooftops and chimney pots.
I used a limited palette of Cobalt Blue, Permanent Rose, Burnt Sienna and Lemon Yellow, and my new Daniel James masking fluid.
