Ashopton to White Tor

Autumn at the Upper Derwent Valley towards Derwent Edge

Three hour walk from Ashopton Viaduct to White Tor, taking in the spectacular autumnal views of Ladybower and the upper Derwent Valley, marvelling at the rays of sun breaking through the clouds behind Win Hill, and exploring some of the rugged gritstone tors. Encountered more grouse than I have ever seen before, a huge flock of redwing (possibly fieldfares), some kind of raptor having a rest on a telegraph pole and a pair crows of course.

October at Curbar Edge

Sketching at Curbar Edge last week. Lots of people walking their doggos along the top but just me and the jackdaws cocooned in the fog down here (and, briefly, a charm of goldfinches). Absolutely magical. Have I mentioned how much I love autumn in the Peak District?

Longshaw sketchbook

Sketching at Longshaw

My sketchbook and I went out for a brisk walk around Longshaw this week. There are some incredible autumn colours up there at the moment (just look at that bracken!). I had fun trying to capture the mood.

For those of you who are interested in these things, I sketched using a combination of watercolour & waterbrush, sailor pen with waterproof ink, wax crayon and colour pencil.

Walking, sketching, inspiration

Not much to report from the studio this week but here are a few snapshots from behind the scenes.

Some of my inspiration and sketches this week

As well as grabbing as much painting time as I can between all the Other Things, I’ve been working on lots of shop updates and improvements, and I’ve put aside the guilt (mostly) and made time for a few sketch/walks out in the Peak District for some autumnal sunshine and inspiration.
