Visiting Northern England: "Guise Cliff" - Painting Nidderdale

Stage 4: Painting the valley.

As I paint this scene of Nidderdale, I am amazed, once again, at the colors of  northern England in late winter. The countryside reminds me of a giant patchwork quilt sprinkled with farms and houses, accented by the market town, Pateley Bridge, in the midst of it all. It truly is a beautiful place to wander and explore.
Stage 5: Completing the valley.
At last, I am ready to paint the drama of the foreground.
