The Old Lady playing the Organ.


Excellent painting, the colours are great and the rock has really good texture to it.

Like this a lot fabulous rocks would like to see this in real life

Great palette. That foreground rock is like an ancient beast ready to take off. Beautifully painted Brian.

Thank you for the encouraging comments Paul, Heather, Romila & Carole. Be prepared for a stiff but thoroughly rewarding climb Heather.

Nice rock work and colors Brian, I know the area well spent many years in the Lakes climbing and walking plus leading groups, I have never heard this feature called that before so that is interesting, nice one.

Very impressive, Brian. Strong composition with a lot of depth in it.

Thank you Malcolm. They say Helm Crag gets its name from how it looks from various differing viewpoints. I'm not sure my eye is sufficiently artistic to put the shape to the name in all the cases.

Thank you for your comments Mia.

What ever it’s called, you’ve made it a wonderful centre piece in this beautiful crisp and clear watercolour.

Kind words, thanks Fiona & yes, whats in a name anyhow.
