Spring Snow on Skiddaw – Greeting Card



“It was a day that will stand out like a mountain in my life”


[written by Charles Lamb about climbing Skiddaw in 1802 from: Black’s Guide to the English Lakes – ed. Gordon-Home, p136]


Here is an absolute classic William Heaton Cooper painting, combining all of the elements inherent in 18th century British watercolour tradition, with a modern sensibility. Capturing the magnificent view Skiddaw commands at the head of Borrowdale, where an emotive sky with blooming fluffy clouds, smooth mountain slopes, weather-beaten trees, are all marvellously relected back in Derwent water, combining to make a forceful composition.
