Paintings of Catbells Causey Pike and Skiddaw The Northern  Lingholm Stone Room Tryptych


The bulk of skiddaw dominates everything at the northern end of the Lake. Most often portrayed darkly through lashing rain and mist with bright slate screes. When seen before breakfast from either Derwentwater or the  Skiddaw suites in the autumnal morning light  the Grey Crags can shine brightly. When I walked up Slade Beck and out onto Carlside on a fine day  I became determined to capture Skiddaw in a happy mood. So to Catbells and Causey Pike with their nobbly or olistrom summits. These to partners look amazing from Keswick as they tower above the Lingholm shore line. Both offer a fine days challenge for the fell walker whose expedition is best started from the ferry jetty at Lingholm with a stop at the Lingholm Garden Cafe which they will pass on their way.

Paintings of Ladore Castle Crag and Eel Crag The Jaws Of Borrowdale The Southern Lingholm Stone Room  tryptych.


This view is one of the most visited by lakeland artist and would have been a constant source of interest for Beatrice Potter and her family during their stay at Lingholm.  Painted from the East bank of the Lake the view screams out to be made into a complete panorama with Castle Rock the centre piece of the twin jaws of Borrowdale. "My  final drawings and models embrace this with the centre panel given to Castle Rock and the view down Borrowdale to the high crags of Broad End. Much inspired by the views from Lingholms Borrowdale Suite which gives an unparralled view of this scene.


The side panels or  book ends paintings are homages to the precipitous scambled granite rockfalls above Lodore on the East and Eel Crag on the left. Ladore and the Lador Falls are frequently mentioned in victorian paintings of Lakeland. Whilst the mines on the opposite side of the valley, which must have been busy then are given rare mention.






I'm currently reworking in oils with both brush and palette knifes. Im happy with the resuts so far the modellos and will make a link for you to follow.
