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.
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.
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.
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 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.
