Day Ten Art Advent Derwentwater

Day Ten Art Advent

Evening Light, Derwentwater

Painted in Oils

What better way to end the day
Last rays of light 
On the mountain tops
A stillness settling on the lake
Canada Geese
Flying low and finding their way to a peaceful night.

Signed A3 prints 
Unframed and posted in a postal tube for safe delivery.

Day nine Art Advent Blencathra

Day Nine Art Advent


Painted in Pastels for sale at Viridian Gallery, Keswick.

Standing Loud and proud, admired from the A66 in all weathers.
Sometimes wrapped in mist or bathed in sunshine.
It's many ridges to the top, with Sharp Edge the most famous of them all.

Day Eight Art Advent

Day Eight Art Advent 

Carzone, Monte Isola 

Painted in Watercolours 

Arrive by ferry, take a  walk down the quiet street,
 a young boy playing football,
with dreams of an Italian Shirt to wear.
Old doors, crumbling yet Grand Ochre buildings
Catch a glimpse of a turquoise lake.

Bright flowers spilling over terracotta pots,
A scooter sweeps by, on the way home for Lunch.
Stop at the cafe,  blue checked tablecloths,
And order a latte machiato,
A morning in heaven.

Sharp Edge Limited edition print.

Sharp Edge

Painted in Pastels

Day Seven Art Advent, it's quite nice digging into my archive of paintings and prints.
Here is another large painting, full imperial, which means as big as the paper goes!!
Sharp Edge is seen dramatic and awe inspiring from the A66 but a climb up it's steep slopes in Winter is a real adventure, I take the easy route with views onto Sharp Edge.

Signed Limited Edition A3 prints available

A big painting of a Grand view, painted with Pastels. I loved painting this stunning view, I sketched while skiing at Chamonix and then worked in the studio, lost in the pleasures of Mountain scenery

Catbells from Walla Crag Print.

Day Four

Art Advent

Catbells from Walla Crag 

Painted in Pastels.

Perched on the top of this wonderful little fell with sketchbook and a flask of something warm, makes a very happy artist, especially if it's not windy.
