This is the exact scene I remember seeing many years ago on a landscape photography calendar, and I guess it must have been in the back of my mind for years,

Then one day last September my wife and I were walking near Ullswater, and suddenly there it was in front of us.

I recognised it immediately and knew I wanted to paint it and use it as a tutorial subject.

It has so many of the ingredients I look for in a composition; far distant hills, a distant body of water, a track leading the eye into that distance, and plenty of interesting buildings settled into the landscape, framed by a group of dark trees.

It’s almost three and a half hours long, so plenty of exciting challenges to get to grips with, and lots of techniques to practice along the way.

Happy painting,
