Frosty Inspiration – Lord’s Seat Walk

It was such a lovely day yesterday we headed out for a walk up Lord’s Seat. However before we got to the summit we ran into snow and a gale force wind so strong I couldn’t stand upright. Just goes to show you need to be prepared for all weather when you go out at this time of year.

I found some wonderful inspiration for some digital / textile / mixed media work. Lot’s of frost and ice, even some quite thick snow on the north side of the fell.

This icy path twinkled in the sunlight like silver glassy jewels, the frost sparkled like diamonds where the sun had just caught it before it melted.

Wonderful green mossy banks , rocks, roots and lichens.

The weather was almost at extremes, warm and sunny with hardly a breath of wind just meters from the summit, but on the top it was so windy I couldn’t stand upright and it was so bitingly cold we didn’t linger.

On the way down the cloud over Skiddaw cleared giving us a wonderful view of her snowy cap.

And Grizedale Pike’s snow covered peak reminded me of Mount Fuji

So now the challenge begins, the hardest part for me is bringing all my inspiration together in a unified way. I never have trouble finding inspiration, but bringing it together is another matter. It’s time to get the sketchbook out and start exploring . I’ll keep you posted!
