More Yorkshire Dales!

Here are a couple more pieces inspired by my trip to the Yorkshire Dales.  Variations on a theme but both in mixed media this time (a mix of oil pastel, watercolour, acrylics and acrylic inks).  I loved the dry stone walls and had fun trying to create an impression of these.

The Yorkshire Dales

Walking towards Janet’s Fosse (8″ x 8″ oil on board)

I spent a couple of days walking in the Yorkshire Dales a few weeks ago, including the must-do trail from Malham to Gordale Scar and then over to Malham Cove, with its cliff edge and fabulously preserved limestone pavement. To say the route is well trodden would be an understatement.  There was a steady stream of walkers most of the way, especially from Malham village to the waterfall delightfully named ‘Janet’s Foss’.  The sun was shining that morning after rain overnight and the views were magnificent.  I’ve tried to capture in this small painting my experience of walking into the sunlight – the glare on the path, the walkers ahead and the cloudy mist on the hills ahead.
