THE JAWS OF BORROWDALE – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1020600(1)a

I suppose I wanted to slop some paint around and do a simple landscape and the brooding layers of hills around Borrowdale seemed a good candidate. I had some photos taken from afar so there might be some topographical errors here, but I hope I’m not too far out and anyway the paint had a mind of its own as you know. I had envisioned a more brooding skyscape and it seemed ok when it was wet… . Same old story.

The scene does seem to pose a threat but walking along the banks of the Derwent, in decent weather,  as it flows through Borrowdale for me is a calming and serene experience. Well worth the drive up the M6.
