John and I are lucky enough to have friends living in the north of the Lake District and this weekend we drove up to visit them. I took my sketchbook of course.
It rained buckets to start with, but got brighter. There was not much of the snow left unfortunately, but the very tops still had enough to be lovely.
I did quite a lot of drawing through the car window, while we were on the move but, as you can see, I did brave the cold a few times.
I managed three drawings at Castlerigg. It was incredibly windy though, so really, really cold and there was only so long we could bare to stand there!
As you can see, I was done up in layer upon layer of jumpers and coats and drew in my gloves. I had to hang on to my sketchbook really tightly - if the wind had snatched it, I would never have seen it again!
You can see the rest of the sketches from the weekend (as well as lots more drawings from other days out) on my website here.
