I’ve been doing quite a bit of landscape painting recently. I live in the Peak District and there is lots to be inspired by here. Some truly wonderful sweeping moorland and dramatic gritstone. However……..
I was in Blackpool this weekend (my other job) and the found the time to head on up to Fleetwood in the hope of some good views across Morecombe Bay and the Lake District. It was pretty windy and cool, but I was able to get a few photos and had time for a quick watercolour sketch in the car before heading back.
So, one of my painting afternoons this week has been devoted to an oil painting from my weekend, and as a result I have realised that the Peak District may be inspiring but the sea is first and foremost my first love.
