"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."

The last light of the day. Pastel. 9'' x 12''

Midsummer evening in Ribblesdale. Looking towards Penyghent from Moughton Nab above Helwith Bridge. The fresh green of the newly mown fields contrasting with the darker colour of the longer uncut grass. The drystone walls help to give form to the landscape as they criss cross the lower slopes of the fell.
