Calm Morning, Derwentwater

Oil on board, 12 x 17 inches

Continuing my current theme of Lake district paintings, I gave a 2-hour demo to Horncastle Art Group and painted this beautiful view of Derwentwater, reaching this stage in the time allowed:
Having got absorbed with the task and commentary as I painted, I forgot to take a photo of the Group to post here.  You'll just have to take my word for it that the two thousand strong crowd........were a knowledgeable, happy and appreciative audience.

I finished off the painting back in the studio, refining the colours and tones and placed the two Canada Geese to break up the symmetrical reflections.
