Drawings of Cumbria

As I mentioned a couple of posts ago one of the reasons for setting up this blog was to be able to share some of my drawings…….so here come the next ten. Drawings of Cumbria this time!

They are original pen and ink drawings, A 2 size and for sale, just message me for further details.

Yew Tree Farm near Coniston. This is actually the view of the farm from the road, it’s a fabulous place and must have looked this way for hundreds of years, if you can forget about the constant traffic passing by!

Arnside. Just a few minutes from Milnthorpe is Arnside, one of my favourite places, as a child I spent many happy times playing on the beach and exploring, very Swallow’s and Amazon’s!

The Old Grammar School and Church, Hawkshead. You’re going to see lots of drawings of churches, I’m not religious but as buildings they are good to draw!

And here we go…..another church, this time in Grasmere. It always seems to rain when I go here however it’s worth it for the Grasmere gingerbread that’s made here. It really is terrific and a certain Prince of Wales always stops off here to collect some and say hello (maybe I’m not supposed to mention that little known fact) still if it’s good enough for him !!!

The Smithy, Loweswater. What a delight, and that roof……it’s poetry

  1. These, like all your pictures, are stunning. I think my favourite has to be the church at Grasmere, I sat and looked at it for ages, but how does anyone choose? You have to have an exhibition, you’re too good to stay hidden.

    1. Thanks Kay. Maybe I’ll think about an exhibition next year…….maybe…….. but you know me, I can produce the work but I’m hopeless at marketing and selling.
