2017 Plein Air Season Opens at Knaresborough

Saturday was a brilliant sunny winter day. It had pored with rain all night and the fields and moors are very waterlogged so we decided to visit Knaresborough instead of doing our customary hike in the Dales. The view of the railway viaduct is a bit of a cliche view but it was too good to miss. The pitch had other benefits – there were plenty of people about and the ones who stopped were all complimentary so I ended up feeling good – even if a bit chilly!

Here is the in progress view (just to prove I painted this on site), the finished painting. I did tighten it up a bit this morning. And the preliminary sketch I did to check out the composition.
