Cherry Burton from Rootas Lane, 23rd February 2016.





 Sometimes you see a view and find that a return visit is necessary. This is how I did this sketch. It was not planned particularly, we found ourselves passing nearby and, as the weather was good, and that I had my sketchpad, we made a detour along Rootas Lane. The lane climbs very slightly and from this highish point on the road, looking south we see Cherry Burton. Dominating the skyline the spiritual presence of St.Michael, has evoked peace and contentment to generations of local parishioners in the village below. Even now, as the village has grown, it remains surrounded by countryside, fields of cereal, livestock and farmsteads. Looking up again I saw buzzards pass on lazy wings drifting out of sight. Though a small, quiet lane, occasional farm traffic would pass by, We met a local woman who walked this lane as part of her regular exercise and we chatted about this and that. The need to capture this view now is important as, soon the leaves on trees will hide some detail. I have also produced a pochade box oil painting of this view which I will post soon.

This view is just a partly completed little study. I have uploaded the picture so that you can click it to enlarge.
FOR SCHOOLS.
Please feel free to print it off and have a go at adding colour and perhaps a little more detail.
