Beverley Minster from footpath heading south, a lovely late September day.

Plein air oil on canvas, 12x10
I do like this scene. Some basic acommodation exists in a caravan alongside some stabling for a few horses. A beautiful black hore walked past, legs hiiden, which seemed a little odd but nevertheless it added an extra element to see and remember.


Plein air oil on canvas 12x10"
Using my home made pochade box after some adjustments to allow thicker canvases to be used. First outing today when I did these two paintings looking over towards the Minster. These are of course, plein air work and as such reflect ( sic ) an impression more than a detailed work in a studio. The large willow tree on the left, above, was the source of a sudden staccato cawing and looking up I saw two magpies trying to drive off a sparrow hawk. The sparrow hawk took little notice and  remained flying, casually, around the tree top. However perseverance paid off and the hawk flew away. Behind me the huge earth moving tipper trucks were hard at work ferrying top soil from Long Lane to the site office area. Occasionally passing trucks would sound their horns as they passed each other. Autumn colour is just beginning to be displayed by some trees as can be seen above.
Saw a number of large whites and a very small brown butterfly with some black spots.
