Paintings of England

painting of High Branthwaite in the Yorkshire DalesI've begun working on my new paintings of England and have so many ideas I don't know where to start. So I started small, with these two paintings of the Howgill Fells area of Cumbria in the Yorkshire Dales. Our good friends the Hartleys own a lovely country home just a mile from Sedbergh and have welcomed us there several times. Their daughter Geraldine will be married there this month, and there's not a picture of Howgill Fells Cumbria Yorkshire Dalesprettier setting in all the world. The old stone barn in the painting has been converted into guest quarters and an art studio for Barbara Hartley, a fantastic artist in her own right.
