THE RAIN GATHERS AROUND WINDERMERE – PASTEL PAINTING

P1100363(1)

Walking back from Bowness to Waterhead in Ambleside along the side of Wansfell Pike recently, I could see the rain coming in off the sea and making its way towards Windermere and me. I have been thinking of doing this in oils and thought a sketch in pastels might be worthwhile first.

I love the patches of illuminated country picked out against the formless gloom and the way landforms are lost and found in the low cloud.
