It's a lovely sunny day today and it looks like winter is finally losing its grip. We are looking forward to warmer days and this painting is a reminder of a lovely summer afternoon. I set off with Merice from Winteringham on the long climb up to High Mowthorpe. It was worth the effort. We were rewarded with some splendid views over this typical Yorkshire Wolds landscape. This was the view about half way up the track. Winteringham is a small village nestling in the valley. It is dominated by its ancient church which made a good focus for the painting. I added the man sheltering behind the bale as that was just what I felt like doing! Sketched on site, I finished the painting back in the studio. This is to remind me to go back again this year...come and join me!
