Cottage in the Lake district. 6x8, Oils on prepared board.

This Painting was done for a friend.He went to the lake district for a Holiday,

saw this Cottage, and took a Photo.So he asked me if i would do a painting

of it for him.I was happy to oblige. I only use a Photograph for reference.

I don`t completely copy it. It is always a good idea to completely copy a

Photo for practice only. copy it exactly as you can. It will help you no end.
