Welcome to my blog

 

Its now, at the time of writing  just 18 months since I started work at Lingholm painting in Derwentwater. . The that the dust from the rennovations has settled and the gardeners begun their task of nuturing the estates environment towards beauty I have begun to revist the  grounds and gardens.

This blog is a way of showing you what I am up to, and share some artist notes and expressions along with new images.

The walled garden stands just outside the large glass slioding doors of the Lingholm Kitchen Terrace, its a lovely place to sit and eat whilst watching the vegitables and flowers grow ready for your enjoyment. That is unless Peter Rabbit gets there first!!!! Only joking.


This 60x50cm watercolour is the first full work out of the garden looking down from the left side of the terrace. (looking from the North) It being a hexagonal shape at the bottom of a slope makes perspective difficult and I will have to use quite a few visual tricks to make everything look fine...Of course my second problem is that its only early days for the fledging plants in the garden and I have had to use my creative talentys to imagion the plants more mature. The plants come from a list that Ken Swift the Head Gardner at Lingholm gave me..with the help of pinterest I have the colours more or less right.

Paintings of Innominate Tarn Haystacks by Rob Miller RSA


Innominate Tarn autumn aprox 24 x30 cm,

Watercolour available from G1 Gallery Windermere



Innominate Tarn

oil on canvas 30x30cm


This location is just an hour away from Lingholm over the Newlands Pass . I've painted this beautiful and wild location a number of times and every time its a different place the light changing constantly, its not to far to take a small pochade box with oils and make a day of it. There are plenty of vantage points and views along the path from Buttermere. The tarn itself or should I say collection of small tarns were made famous by the Blackburn Fellwalker and amazing Lake District Guide writer Wainwright who wrote that Innominate was the place where his ashes should be scattered. Ive pasted below a part of a walk by Tarns Walks which gives a great route description along with photographs. I have some prints of the tarn available on my website www.robmillerartist.org.


Tarn Walks Innominate Tarn Haystacks


Distance/time: 12.4km/7.7 miles. Allow 3.5-4.5 hours

Start: Lake District National Park pay and display car park behind the Bridge Hotel in Buttermere (grid reference NY174169)

Ordnance Survey Map: OL4 The English Lakes North-western area

After the walk: Croft House Café, Bridge Hotel and Fish Hotel, all in Buttermere

What to expect: Lakeshore paths, stony bridleway, rocky clamber, fell paths

Walk outline

The easy walk beside Buttermere makes for a gentle warm-up for the climb on to Haystacks. After ascending to Scarth Gap, the route clambers up the fell’s rocky western ridge. On the summit, a well-used path keeps to the northern edge of the fell, passing Innominate Tarn along the way. The descent uses a relatively quiet path on the southern side of Warnscale Beck and then returns via the lake.

It always seems relatively simple when I am on site at Lingholm and surrounded by beauty in all directions to think of new steps and ways to represent the new walled garden. Its less simple when you get back into the studio and your faced with simplifying a wide range of choice. As ever its best to let practice take its own direction and let the paint choose the way it wants to flow. So I am now sitting down when I get a break from working on larger canvases and I am enjoying exploring the intimate world of colour and gardens. Here are a few examples of the sketches on site in my book and a few trials in my garden by my studio.

A September Derwentwater featuring Causey Pike 294x24cm watercolour

I will miss the beginning and the end of Summer 2016 (not the middle as it always seems to rain in August )Although its always sad to see the geese leave us flying over the house on their way from Rivington to the North I enjoy the fresh feeling that a September morning brings. This is one of my favourite Lakeland September views across Derwentwater and up to the mountain like Causey Pike with the morning mists rising.
