Cragside, Northumberland Oils on box canvas 8 x 8 inches
A memory of an enjoyable weekend up north many years ago.
Cragside is set in forest and is a magical place.
This lake is at the entrance to the house.
In my continuing forage amongst my studio treasures I came across this little canvas.
There was an existing picture but I loaded my brush with leftover paint and began to scrub.
I added a soft yellow top corner and a smudge of pale blue at the bottom.
It seemed to be 'morphing' into a landscape with a lake.
A white highlight was brushed quickly across what appeared to be water.
I stepped back to view, then placed a final small dab of sky colour on the lake.
It reminds me of Cragside. Enough said.
