Reflections on Talkin Tarn, Carlisle


I like this Lesley. The sense of distance is good as is the water in the distance. I also like the addition of the flock of birds

This is great, Lesley. Like the swallows too!!

A lovely confident painting Lesley. I like how you have graduated the greens, yellows and russets of the hills, gives a sense of depth. Love the touch of life in the swallows reflected in the water.

Thankyou so much Heather, please my sense of distance, is ok. The flock of birds caused me a little stress, not quite the way I expected.

Thankyou so much David, swallows pattern are not so easy to replicate.

Thankyou Fiona you are so kind, did you see the building on top of the highest hill? Never found out what it is..

I don’t know what it is Lesley, I’ve just had a look to see if I can find any info about it…..nothing.

A piece with a wonderful sense of the swirling movement of the water and a lovely palette.

Beautifully painted, Lesley.

Thankyou Fiona, we didn't have any luck, so it remains a mystery,

Thankyou so much Seok, those reflection were very interesting.

Thankyou so much Ellen

I was inspired by the reflection on the Tarn, wondered what the wriggling black dots were, to my delight, it was the swallows above, what a display they make. The reflection on this Tarn is almost perfect if undisturbed by the canoeing. Again a beautiful place to visit. Ive painted in acrylic on a piece of cotton canvas I had on a roll I had forgotten about. I think It might look better when framed. Any suggestions welcome.
