Painting of the Lake District A deep pool on the River Levens at Fell Foot Ulverston.

Painting of the Lake District
A deep pool on the River Levens at Fell Foot Ulverston
Rob Miller 30x24cm oil on board


I love sitting or standing still and watching the water slide by under trees and bushes. Sitting by this deep pool on the River Leven at Fell Foot Park in the English Lake District added to a feeling of meditation. I can see a little bit of why fishermen  can stay there all day and night except for me I dont need the fishing rod just myself  and now and then paint brushes and paper.The colours are like a kaleidoscope ever changing in tone and vibrancy as you look you begin to realise that the kaleidoscope is working at subtly different levels both real and imagined.

Oil painting of the Lingholm Estate and Causey Pike in autumnal colour by Rob Miller

The Lingholm Estate and Causey Pike in autumn
30x24cm
I have a never ending feeling of joy when I'm Painting in the English Lake District in autumn. The crisp clean northern air, blue skies and the crisp fall of leaves. As the resident artist of Lingholm and its Estate it is a pleasure to be working in one of the nicest places to witness the passage of autumn. Woodland planted in the days of Beatrice Potter has now come of age giving a splendid show of reds yellows and ochres. More new work to follow soon.

A new project to paint the estate grounds and the new features of the Walled Garden the jetty and grounds.
