I've been lucky enough to stay in Bowness on Windermere for a couple of days with daughter Helen. The weather was perfect and the lake was so beautiful with a touch of mist - I didn't have my camera! so here's a couple of my  prints of Bowness

The scenery is stunning. I took lots of photos and did plenty of sketching and am feeling really inspired, can't wait to get back in the studio!

Visit to Leeds

Just returned from a short stay in Leeds with my daughter Helen. Haven't travelled by train for a long, long time and thoroughly enjoyed the experience - so convenient and hasslefree!

Thought we'd get some Christmas shopping done but it was great just wandering around the streets looking at the wonderful architecture and being inspired!
