Another plein air painting made in the North York Moors. Hawnby Hill is a distinctive hill between Hawnby and Osmotherly. It sits at the head of the lush Bilsdale right on the edge of the heather upland on a beautiful if narrow road.
Seen from the North, as here, the foreground is dabbed with individual trees set in the heather, looking like they have a tough time of it. They have much character and would make paintings themselves, often twisted and leaning away from some unseen force which is difficult to imagine on a summers day.
No doubt I'll paint in the area again with so much inspiring material to 'go‑at'.
