All the way to the top. 12x17, Acrylic on board

this is a painting that I did a while ago. I have been so busy that I haven`t had the chance to do any painting, so I`ve fished this one out.

Packhorse Bridge with Figure. 12x17, oils on board.

This is an update of my painting- Packhorse bridge 4. I have added a figure to it. Two of my followers made a suggestion, one said that it is fine without it, and the other said the same, but try adding a figure. I decided to see what it would look like with a figure. I can soon erase it if necessary.

Packhorse Bridge 4. 12x17", Oils on board.

This will probably be the last Packhorse Bridge painting. Actually it is the same bridge as bridge 3, but much more included,also it is at a different angle to 3. Now I would like to ask anybody that is interested, to tell me whether I should add Figures to it, or leave well alone. Please give me your opinion, thank you.

Packhorse Bridge 3, 9x12 Oils on board.

Another Packhorse Bridge, the third one I believe, I`ve lost count. This is probably the last one for the time being. This Bridge is situated again in Watendlath L/D. And it is where you can get some refreshments, you will need them. My Art club will be having an Exhibition in two weeks time and I will be exhibiting these paintings.

Packhorse Bridge 2. 12x17" oils on board

This is a beautiful spot. Further up the hill is a little shack that sells light refreshments and drinks. You need refreshments after walking all this way from the main road to the top. But we cheated, we had our Car. I shale be painting another packhorse bridge that is at the very top. There is several Buildings up there, so I shale be painting a couple of those as well. Obviously, we couldn`t drive over this bridge, they were only built for Packhorses. There is a dirt road that you can use.

Slaters Bridge. 9x12, Acrylic on board

Slaters Bridge is in Little Langdale, Cumbria. It is close to the slate Quarries, and It gets it`s name from when the workers used it when returning Home from the mines.
