SHOP: Longshaw, through the trees

Another expressive Peak District landscape painting for sale. This Derbyshire landscape picture is inspired by a view of Hathersage Moor through the trees on the Longshaw Estate near Sheffield.

Longshaw Peak District painting by local artist Sian Vernon

I created this affordable Peak District landscape art using watercolour blocks on 300gsm smooth watercolour paper. I have tried to capture the mood of the windswept trees and moors in winter. Measuring A3 (297 x 420mm) it can be easily framed yourself in a standard sized frame, or framed professionally for a more personal look. A lovely gift for UK walkers and hikers or for anyone with connections in Sheffield or the Hope Valley.

For sale at £90 (including free UK shipping) from my Folksy shop.

SKETCHBOOK: Owler Tor, Longshaw

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.

I’m really enjoying sketching with these Derwent Inktense watercolour blocks at the moment (affiliate link from Jacksons).

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.

I really loved the gorgeous muted autumnal colours at Longshaw Estate on my walk last week. I stopped to do a few sketches en route.

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.
