Storm approaching Longshaw, sketchbook

I was about to get out and go for a walk at Longshaw but I thought better of it. Ten minutes later there was a very wintery shower over this area of the Peak District! Difficult to sketch or describe or photograph what I saw, but the approaching rain was masking out parts of the distant hills. It was so beautiful. I really haven’t done it any justice, but I’ll try to do a proper painting at some point.

Trying to get a better, more abstracted effect, showing how the rain and colours looked in my head!
