A selection of three small oil on paper studies from a series that I have been doing on the Pendle Forest area. They were painted in and around the hamlet of  Twiston above Downham which lies below the bulk of Pendle Hill. Set on a rising blunt ridge that points towards the Yorkshire three peaks Twiston has a mix of views from open moorland with open aspects across to the Yorkshire Dales in the north and the Irish sea in the south, to private wooded glades and splashing brookes. I found it a quiet beautiful spot to paint and wander at will.

Oil is a challenging medium for the outdoors practice practice practice is the keyhttp://rob-miller.orgLancashire Artist Rob Miller original paintings of Lancashire
