silverdale in pastelsI've back-tracked a bit on our journey here. This is Silverdale, on the way to the English Lake District. In pastels still, and mostly done on site. I debated wether or not to put in the figures since the only logical place was more or less in the centre of the picture - a sort of compoisitinal no-no. However in the end I thought that rules are there to be broken and I wanted the figures to be about that far away in the middle distance. Yes, people did come into the picture, but it was a group of four or five, and I chose my own colours for their clothing.
