"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Halton Gill, Littondale

Littondale Meadows. Acrylic on Canvas. 395mm x 500mm.

Midsummer at Halton Gill at the head of Littondale. The meadows still full of wild flowers before the first hay crop is cut. The evening clouds gather around Fountains Fell threatening rain to come later.
