A while back we, as in my family and I, went for a day out in the countryside. We went near Youlgrave, Derbyshire. I remember it being a hot summers day. We decided to go for a drive to see if we could discover a new area to explore. We saw some people parking up and going down a path. It looked interesting so we decided to take a look and it was worth it. The walk led through a field with cows and sheep and then ended up near a quiet road. Here we discovered another path that led to this stream. We saw people sitting among the tall grasses having picnics. It was a hidden gem of a place, a secret hideaway.
The water was crystal clear, ducks were cooling off in it and the different variations of blues and greens in the water made me feel like I was holidaying abroad. Of course I went mental with the camera and took lots of photos of the place. Here is the photograph I based my painting on.
Here are the first and last stages.
Oh by the way I am on holiday next week, yep you guessed no blog. I will see you the following week. Have a good one.
Love and Peace
