Stool End Farm

[gallery type="square" ids="1994,1995,1996,1997,1998,1999"] This painting was based on one of many, many images I took on a day trip up to the Langdales in Spring but for the life of me I really couldn't figure out which direction we were facing.  I knew it was in the Langdale valley somewhere and knew that the mountain behind the farm house wasn't Langdale Pikes... in fact that farm house wasn't Dungeon Ghyll....  Anyhow after ages wracking my brain, it took one message on Facebook for someone (thank you Chris) to suggest Stool End Farm and like magic I was back looking down on the Farm with the Band in cloud behind it.... doh! but not all that surprising as I have a tendency to take hundreds of photos on days like this.  There are also days when I end up pasting a photo of one end of a mountain and attach it to another by mistake... but that's another story! Stool End Farm, framed original oil on canvas, 50 x 100 cm (size excludes frame).
