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?

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.

I’m going to start sending out a monthly email newsletter again soon. I know I keep promising this, but I think I’ve found a format I can work with.

MORE INFO
This ORIGINAL is SOLD but there’s lots more Peak District art and prints for sale in my Folksy shop.

Sand and rock softly crunching underfoot, the path cuts through brittle, fragrant heather towards the distant outcrop. You clamber up and over the rough cold stone, squeeze through gaps, up, up to the top. Amongst the gnarled birch trees, weathered by wind and rain, you put one foot in front of the other until your toes touch the edge and you stop. And you inhale. And you breathe in the distant views.
