Buttermere from Rannerdale
140 x 50cm - Oil and Mixed Media on canvas

The day I sat down to create the sketch for this painting was wild and windy. It was difficult to stand up never mind trying to hold a sketch pad. I tucked myself in behind a rock and gave it a go. This painting is a result of that wild autumn day!

Ryvoan Bothy - The Cairngorms

60 x 30cm - Oil and Mixed Media on canvas

Sketching in the Cairngorms can be quite a challenge during the winter months. Rarely is the paper still enough to apply the paint when the winds are strong. Ice crystals start to form on the paper as the watercolour freezes. My sketchbooks become little diaries which light my spark for inspiration.
