Falcon Crag painting by Rob Miller

Falcon Crag oil on board 24 x 30cm
I started this painting moored just of  Barrow Beck whilst aboard  Lingholm 1 the Estates rowing boat. The season was  late summer on a day with plenty of  movement. I was driven  off  down wind all the time,  eventually the  rain squalls got worse and stuffing everything away,  I rowed the long way back against the wind to Lingholm. I returned to the painting yesterday having found it in a pile of work. I enjoyed completing it,  working away full of good memories of a great lake and view.

Brrr winter is still here Painting of Lingholms Derwentwater shore, by Rob Miller

Winter is still here Lingholm Boathouse March 24x30cm oil on board
Brrrrrrrrrrrrr I thought after the weekend that spring had come but today the winter came back with a bite. I loved it down by the old boat house huddled in its lee, a place of the past and  a good place to consider the future.This is an oil on board
