The Rocks at the Crook o'Lune

The Rocks at the Crook o'Lune

This is a relatively late (c. 2000) full size watercolour of the rocks at the apex of the bend of the Lune at the Crook o’Lune near Caton, viewed lookng upstream.   Although quite late, Terry had long wanted to do a watercolour of this scene (I believe there was an earlier oil painting – but I may be wrong), but struggled to find a water level that was exactly what he wanted. I’ve been unable to inspect the back of the picture for a name but in discussions my father always referred to it as “The Rocks”.

Like in so many of his watercolours, the trees are wearing their autumn colours.
