Beverley Minster and cottage from the south - oil on canvas board 12 x 9", plein air.
The day started with a deep frost and snow flurries as we decided to walk into Beverley. A short while later the sun came out and it became a pleasant day - so I decided at the last moment to try a pochade box painting. A short 10 minute walk took me to a field off Long Lane where I spotted this view. The Minster was partially hidden by tall trees though still interesting. By walking on the edge of the field until I could see the cottage the picture seemed too good to miss. The field in the foreground is waterlogged again and holding pools of water.
Below are two details of the painting above.
