Dark clouds and summer rain storm over a Peak District moorland landscape. A red grouse has just been disturbed from its resting place and pops up from the heather with a loud flap-flap-flap of its wings and an unmistakable whirring croak “goback-goback-goback”.
Original digital painting by Sian Vernon.
I’m having fun making these ‘paintings’ with the iPad. I used to paint a lot with acrylic but I just don’t have the space or time to do it at the moment, so this is really allowing me to play and produce something with a similar looking end-result. I hope you enjoy seeing them.
We’ve had some pretty damp, foggy days this summer in the UK. The Peak District has been particularly bleak but wild, atmospheric and beautiful. This new painting is inspired by the mist and cotton grass on Hathersage Moor this June.

Digital abstract Peak District landscape painting inspired by two stones which seem to form an entrance to the iron age fort, with the outline of Carl Wark and the silhoutte of Higger Tor in the distance.
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.
