I approached a hilly property from a footpath.....I later researched these acres for sale.....3 beautiful houses on one property.....almost all of it not visible from any road.

Fox Hill....yesterday........I exaggerated the yellows....fall time seems to be coming in early. It was very cool this morning. I left today's painting a bit late....not much light left right now.

This little abstraction only suggests the landscape, but the memory of a particular location informed the choices. It was a wonderful steep and wild climb on a narrow path through some hill country.

Late afternoon on a still, overcast September day. The northumberland hills are so varied.....you can find all sorts of fascinating roads to explore.
I have avoided Payne's Grey in the last little while in favour of black or a warmer grey....in this case set on top of a pink underlayer in the sky.

I never capture any of these moods very precisely....but the impetus for this was the way the few blues come together to create a feeling of calm and ease on a lake earlier in the morning....a cove at Rice Lake.
