“Driving around the higher parts of the Peak District looking for snow, I had a phone call from my son Mark who was painting on location near Cross o’ the Hands, Mugginton Lane End. He had found plenty of snow and also these cattle. I soon joined him with my sketchbook.I no longer paint on location in very cold conditions. My sketchbook has served me very well and over many years, I have trained myself to take just what I need from the landscape to be able to paint it back in the studio. The farmer had just put some hay out for the cows, so they all came close by.
I first painted this group of trees in the early seventies, before Mark was born. It is great to see him painting some of the same places now and enjoying it just as much as I do.”
