Just got back from Cumbria

Spent a few days at Allonby (big thank you to Steve and Christine -Castlegate House Gallery) did a number of drawings on the beach on the first day. Can't believe it the day I choose to visit Allonby the sea is like a mill pond! Will have to pop back to paint the famous waves another day.
Second day visited Maryport and Loweswater. Couldn't resist searching out the spot that Sheila Fell produced her wonderful paintings of Maryport-produced a couple of drawings. Loweswater is stunning -walked the complete lake producing drawings in my sketch book.
On the final day visited Buttermere hoping for an atmospheric day and interesting skies. Once again it was a lovely day-not ideal conditions for painting! Did one painting, which turned out OK.
