Yorkshire Dales

Today I was seized with nostalgia, a longing to walk again in the Yorkshire Dales.

These sketches are from 3 years ago.  This first I think is looking west from the Ribble Way footpath across to Simon Fell.

The majesty of this limestone landscape arises I think from hidden sculpting by subterranean water.

I made these small sketches standing up balancing above a fifty foot drop looking down into a unroofed cavern

and later from the back of the car sheltering from the rain.

    • You’re very welcome and Happy New Year.
      Your garden is your art I think. Now that’s a slow medium: planning, planting then waiting for the easel, canvas and paint to grow to create your image on the landscape.
