Hills above Longdendale

This painting has been sold

Acrylic on hardboard 8" x 8"

There are 5 reservoirs serving this area of the north with water. You can just see a glimpse of the first one up there on the left. I think that is Bottoms reservoir. The sun was just catching the hills there on a fine September day.

Now I know that the colors are sooo spot on, as well as the mood and atmosphere. Great job!

We should swap work some day (if you want)

Rene, I'm glad you got to visit UK - where I live and where Rob lives is very similar in colour and mood I think. Will mail you about the swap.
