This is about 15km from my house and only a short hike down from the road.
It was my first trip out this year and although I had hoped to paint outside it proved too chilly for these old bones (also wet underfoot) and I chickened out and took some photos.
As well as the absolute stillness what was striking was the blue and orange colours which I focussed on at first but gradually subdued

Thank you so much Sandi Robyn and Christine for your wonderful comments on my painting.

It is always very much appreciated. This is one of my favourite spots to paint. 

Having been away from home for a month I am looking forward to getting back in time for Autumn colours

You really did a lovely job of making the lake luminous with the cloud reflections.  What a beautiful spot and painting!

Many thanks everyone for the comments.

Yes Jessica I am very lucky.. With Mountains Lakes and woodland nearby and the sea only an hours drive I am almost as lucky as Richard! So I have no excuse not to produce landscapes.

The National Park is closed to motor traffic so  it is very peaceful but does involve a bit of a Hike.
