South Dalton from the North East

South Dalton 12 x 10 oil on canvas
Though sunny the weather remains very cold with the wind chilling blasts making the pochade box wobble and my fingers complain. This has been done using a minimum pallette, cadmium yellow, cerulean blue, raw sienna, black and white. The icing on the cake, so to speak, was a recuperative visit to the Pipe and Glass for a sandwich and coffee, where on leaving a red kite hovered overhead as I chatted to a local farmer and his wife. He was knowledgeable regarding local wildlife and spoke of  otters, roe deer and coots. A lovely excursion and something which is typical of what I would have done with Doreen, whose presence is still very much with me.... thank god.
