SHOP: Over Owler Tor II

An original Peak District watercolour landscape painting of Over Owler Tor from Little Moor near Hathersage, Derbyshire. I love the fortress-like feeling of this imposing gritstone tor and the windswept moor beneath. There’s a suggestion of the burnt oranges and ochres of the winter moorland grasses of the Dark Peak in the foreground.

SKETCHBOOK: Little Moor, Hathersage

A couple of sketchbook pages I forgot to post from February. These were drawn from Little Moor on the road from Ringinglow to Hathersage. The first is of Winyard’s Nick and the second of Over Owler Tor and the start/end of Millstone Edge. I decided to exaggerate the purple and lime green!

It’s hard to believe these photos were taken in February. As I was sitting with my back against the wall in the sunshine, a stoat, looking completely out of place in its white winter coat, popped its head out about 3 meters away, looked at me and hopped off up the field.

SHOP: Millstone Edge from Little Moor

My latest Peak District watercolour landscape painting of Millstone Edge from Little Moor in Hathersage, Derbyshire. Over Owler Tor can be seen on the left hand side. With this expressive painting I’ve tried to capture the feeling of this windswept moor in winter, and the gritstone rock escarpment and tors above. There’s a suggestion of the purplish glow of the bare birch trees under the rock face.

A sunny Spring walk on the Longshaw Estate with a quick stop to sketch Owler Tor. If you’re travelling along the A6187 from Sheffield/Fox House towards Hathersage, this gritstone tor is on your left hand side, opposite the Surprise View car park.

WALK: Yarncliff Wood, Longshaw

Longshaw views

Just a quick jaunt around Longshaw estate, exploring a few paths at the Yarncliff Wood end which are less familiar to me. Had to make a decision between turning left or right at one point, and of course I chose incorrectly.

Due to some unplanned clambering and mild peril, I didn’t have the time or energy to sketch but I did get a good workout (physically and emotionally), took some photos, and I stumbled upon the remains of some old buildings and a stone waymarker which as quite interesting.

At least I’ll know which way not to go next time. I was also very grateful to my past self for packing emergency jelly babies. Must remember to replenish those for next time.
