Oils on Canvas - 24 x 30 inches

This image was inspired by a walk on Askham fell above Pooley Bridge. This is one of our favourite walks and I have painted this scene before and will many times I imagine

The day was pretty dark and moody but every now and again Jacobs Ladders, shafts of sunlight would stab down to illuminate the fells on the right. Even on the darkest day Ullswater never lets you down

It was not my intention to make this painting so dramatic but as I worked upon it just naturally evolved , to be fair I do like a bit of drama so this is just me pushing the envelope.
