Thought I would share some stunning Winter weather with you. The Lake District is looking wonderful, the mountains appear bigger and more dramatic with Snow and it's very inspiring. Derwentwater is starting to freeze again like it did in 2010.I will keep you posted on how it's going this week. All main roads are fine but the smaller roads to some of the villages are a bit slippery!

Looking towards the Coledale Horseshoe

The back of Blencathra, the colours are amazing

I'm hoping to do a painting a day in February.
This is Number One looking towards the Howgills and the Eden valley, painted from my window.
These paintings are going to be small studies and a time limit of an hour (hopefully) The idea is to loosen up, understand how the paints behave and simplify and paint what captures the imagination.
Lets see how it goes!!
