Product information

"There, sometimes does a leaping fish
Send through the tarn a lonely cheer;
The crags repeat the raven's croak
In symphony austere:
Thither the rainbow comes, the cloud,
And mists that spread the flying shroud,
And sunbeams, and the sounding blast"
[W. Wordsworth - Tarns (1810) in: Prose of Lakeland - B. L. Thompson, p70]
 
One of the best views of the Langdale Pikes is from the miniature lake called 'Blea Tarn' just above Great Langdale. Once described as the 'cottage of the solitary lonely, on classic ground' by M. J. B. Baddeley, William has used a very fluid watercolour technique in this ethereal painting, masterly in its precision and economy of handling, with the Pikes forming like an icy cathedral in the background and the reflections in the tarn so reminiscent of Chinese painting, which he greatly admired.
