Lingholm Derwent water Fells

Working in the studio behind the Stone Room

Modello under painting of Causey Pike.
This is my attempt to capture the craggy nature of the fell
and its undeniable steepness. You can see the boat house peeping from
behind the Lingholm island on Derwent water
as I rowed out
Causey Pike at Dawn, seen from behind the
 Lingholm islands Acrylics on canvas. 
Catbells autumnal splendour viewed from the
Lake acrylics on paper. Now completed.
Catbells viewed from opposite the boathouse, a favourite peak
and walk of many. The clearing of some of the woodland
 has made a better
view of some of the Lingholm Estates
beautiful tree species.
Skiddaw underdrawing in pen on canvas
This is the centre of the northern wall  tryptych
Here Im looking at the significant bulk and steepness of Skiddaw
and its associated fells plus the Grey Crags towering above the
Lake and Keswick town.
