This is Dodd Fell. Growing up we would camp at a place called Scarness near Bassenthwaite, in the summer half term, with a big group of families and friends from the North-West. This was the family friendly walk we would often do on the Saturday, with such stunning views from the top, and many snacks to keep us going!
We spent some time away over the Easter break which meant not a lot of creating happened! I did however get the privilege of working on this sketch of the Langdales - a commission for a birthday present
We didn't make it over to the Lakes this year but in previous years we have cultivated a love of warm damson gin on this fell. Our New year's day walk on Gummers How.
I played a little round of guess the fells with my family over Christmas. I was so relieved they could identify them! This is where my dad, brother and husband have entered fell races over the years and the first fell my sister walked (and got lost on) with her husband - Wansfell.
Just a little try at some mountains. This is where I grew, and as much as I love being near the sea, I do miss the mountains.
