Loch Maree

I was really taken with Loch Maree, it faces the right way for summer sunsets. It was a pity about the midges though, I ended up bedding down in Torridon. It's also a long way from Yorkshire, I've ended up using quite alot of artistic liscense with this one as the weather wasn't all that great when I went. My aim for this picture was to try and get a nice warm glow going in the centre and conter balance it with cool darks an the outside

Footpath to Beck Hole

I took the kids on one of my favourite walks Yesterday, from Grosmont to Beck Hole. Finally the cold weather has arrived here and hopefully we have escaped the grey atlantic weather for a bit. Crisp frosty sunlight, you can't beat it.

The weather has been so drab lately I decided to cheer myself up by loosing myself in these wonderful rich colours.

I've experimented by putting this video on Youtube for a laugh.

This is Fridays picture and I don't like it. Sometimes I walk away from a painting unsure of how I've done. After a couple of days the picture fairy comes along and sprinkles her magic picture dust and the painting comes to life. I'm still waiting. I think i will come back to this one, but for now I'm going to put this one in a quiet corner.

Here's the video

After looking at the video I think i've over worked the sky and lost all of the colour.

Oh dear the picture fairy has come, I'm now really taken with it. I now feel like a complete nutter, unfortunately this behaviour is repeated on a regular basis.

Today's picture is of the standing stones at Callanish, Lewis. Again this is going in the wedding list for Dughall and Poppy.

Check out this video of its creation


As ever I'm hitting problems. This Blog is refusing to up load photo's. I'm not happy and I'm going to switch to another blog. Please be patient.
