I love the ways that a shower can transform a landscape. The colours become more vivid and the contrasts clearer.When you are in the Yorkshire Dales you will get lots of opportunities to witness this phenomenon as it is usually raining or about to rain! Hey don't be put off - this only enhances the experience of visiting this beautiful part of God's own county. This is a gated road near Foxup which is a tiny hamlet situated between Litton and Halton Gill. We discovered it by accident while holidaying in the Dales a few years back. It is the source of the River Skirfare which can be glimpsed through the wall in the left of my painting. 'Gated' roads are just that - roads with a 'gate'. These single track roads are used a drove roads by the sheep farmers so it is important the gates are kept closed so follow the country code and always make sure they are securely shut after you have passed through.. This is one of the paintings I recently discovered so it has never been posted before. The strong composition covers up any deficiency in my painting and I am pleased my love for this wonderful area shines through making this a pleasing picture for me and I hope you enjoy it too.
