First visit to Askrigg this year. Had reasonable weather for walking but still to early in the season for plain air painting, I must be getting soft in my old age!

Scar top is a limestone ridge that outcrops below Addlebrough, and runs east-west along the valley from Cubeck to Bainbridge. It make a great walk which can be done from Askrigg. This view is looking northwest, up the valley, from the ridge just above Bainbridge.

Old Barn, Addlebrough – Winter Sun

I painted this in September (see previous blog) and was keen to capture the same view in another season. It is on the footpath which continues up to Askrigg Pasture just northwest of the village, near Lease House.
