Looking towards Bishop Burton from Dale Gate - still cold! Swans overhead.

Plein air 20 x 16" oil on canvas - almost complete, may leave it as it is - or return soon to finish.
 Print of watercolour version available here
Visited the same area as previous post but disappointed with the hazy distance views ( too much humidity ) and also that the fracking site has now erected a large visible drilling tower.  I looked around and found this view. It is looking towards Bishop Burton from Dale Gate, a back road that leads up out of Bishop towards the North Newbald road ( and the fracking site ). I was delighted to meet a mature lady from the village who was walking her very well behaved West Highland Terrier. I asked if she new an ex colleague CB from my days at Deans and Lightalloys. Indeed she did and will tell him we had met. When painting this view I heard a swish, swish sound, looking up I saw two beautiful swans in full flight. Wonderful. Young, local men passed and tooted their LOUD horns and we smiled at each other. Rather pleasing site with dog walkers and horse riders passing by exchanging  greetings.
Happy painting
Looks good as an A4 print !
