The lovely Coniston, where it doesn’t always rain……though it has done every time I’ve been there and I’ve been there a lot of times!

 

Random drawings!

I’m going through some drawings and trying to put them in some sort of order………..I’m failing miserably! I’ve spent the morning trying to work out where some of them were drawn……why oh why weren’t they labelled.

One of my problems is that when I’m drawing I’m interested in that drawing but as soon as its finished it’s put aside and I start the next one. I assume I’ll remember a drawing but I don’t…….and after a few years, well I might remember drawing it but where it was drawn…………

Bit by bit they will be sorted but in the mean time I’m going to post them on my blog randomly.

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 !!!
