The hilltop skyline and Hunting Tower at Chatsworth, seen on a fresh spring day. I thought a long horizontal format (8 x 16 inches) would be useful for this oil painting, which shows soft grey clouds sailing past. The trees are just starting to show some spring colour.
The Hunting Tower was constructed in the 1580s for Bess of Hardwick, as a summerhouse and possibly for the ladies to view hunting in the park at the foot of the hill (though it does seem to be a long way from the flat riverside area).

Two recent additions to my etsy shop are these summer views of the Pont Neuf and Pont des Arts. This is what you see from more or less the same point on the footpath at the downstream end of Ile de la Cite, when you look up and down river. It was great fun painting these little pictures - it brought back so many happy memories of holidays in Paris.
These paintings are each 5 x 7 inches and are on canvas boards. You can see them at http://www.etsy.com/listing/79350217/pont-neuf-paris-original-acrylic and http://www.etsy.com/listing/79368212/pont-des-arts-paris-original-acrylic
