Managed to get round to a day of painting after a busy week.
I put some of my old paintings of Manchester up at the Cornerstone, Langworthy Road, Salford, as part of The Art Of Salford Exhibition.
Wednesday was life drawing and finally today a chance to do an oil painting.
It's funny how some areas appeal more than others for ideas for paintings. Having just completed some paintings of Heaton park I now returned to Worsley again for inspiration.
I seem to have been painting pictures there for about thirty years ever since I ran the Lantern gallery in the white building at the back of the picture on the left. I amalgamated with four other artists, and we offered a variety of crafts such as wood sculpture, pyrography and textiles, as well as my art work.
Today's painting features a narrow stream found just as you enter the woods near the Dam.
The woods are always a nice place for a walk at any time of year and the landscape is always changing depending on the season and lighting.
I'm sure I will be doing several more on this theme in the future.
