Approach - watercolour of the Nine Standards
This is a small watercolour (15 cms x 10 cms) based on my experience of hiking towards the Nine Standards Rigg in Cumbria UK. It was a very windy day. The monoliths would appear and disappear as I walked along the path up the hills. From a distance it was difficult to make out both size and surface texture of these tall cairns. Walking in the strong wind is slow and hard. The sense of time and approach was the focus of the series Early on the Morning we arrived, which is based on the same site.
