A view from Monsal Head, looking down over the viaduct on a February evening. Three long-tailed tits bravely flit past a watching tawny owl.
This is a view I know well as I take the dogs past here most mornings. The painting was on and off the easel many times over the course of a year or so and at one point I thought it would never be finished. just consigned to the pile of "nearly but not quite"! but I am happy to have been proved wrong! It's actually become one of my favourites.
