I’ve had a long association with sketching and painting and, although I have never attained a high level of skill, I do enjoy the relaxing hobby. Those of you who know and love the Lakes will, I hope, recognise some of the places, if only by the fact that I name them! Some have already been ‘aired’ in my ‘Lake District Walks’, however, for those of you who have no interest in walking but would like to look at my feeble attempts at sketching, here is your chance!

Pictured here is my brother Peter.

This unusual shaped Barn can be seen in Wain Lane, Troutbeck and is near Middlerigg Tarn, close to Windermere.

This field gate caught my eye and is below Troutbeck, Windermere.

PS - my eye is fine now!

Other Sketches

The following sketches were produced by Clive in the few months preceding his death, they depict images from his childhood growing up with the rest of us in the Newmarket Street and Railway Street area of Grimsby.
