It’s impossible while you’re in the Lake District not to succumb to the beautiful landscape that surrounds you. Every trip to the lake puts a smile on my face, I couldn’t help but do a little painting (I have to admit this was a while back now), it’s nothing special but that’s how all ideas start. I really like the shadows from the tree above- each time I moved the shadows changed, changing the outlook of the painting. I enjoying playing about with watercolour it’s quick and the colours run into each other so easily. Looking back at this, I enjoyed it but I need to push it further, I still keep meaning to re-work with the idea of expanding from a photograph. The image above could be a beautiful expansion.
