Here is the first painting I did:
|Views from the Cliff Top, Cheddar 10"x8" oil on board|
This spot was slightly off the path and offering a wonderful view across Cheddar and beyond. For some reason, I couldn't get the Jurassic park tune out of my head while painting this (probably because of the real sense of drama in the place). I actually had to stop myself from painting dinosaurs in there.

|I was so glad I took my umbrella - I would have burnt like a toast otherwise|
|That's me working hard as always|
The second painting was a small one I made on the way down in a lovely place we spotted on the way up but saved it for the end. I had a great time painting it apart from the fact that my umbrella fixing broke so I was holding it in one hand and painting with the other (no spare hand to get rid of the mosquitos unfortunately)
|On the way down from the Cliff Top, Cheddar 6"x8" oil on board|
What caught my eye was the lovely curvy path with patches of light disappearing into the dark woods. A theme and composition I have done many times now and always gives me great satisfaction.
