  • Helm Crag, Grasmere - pencil drawing by Peter Woolley

    Helm Crag, Grasmere


    The summit of Helm Crag, overlooking the village of Grasmere and flanked by Easdale, features several notable rocks. In the distance, you can see the two rocks - one larger than the other - that make up 'The Lion and the Lamb'. The large rock in the foreground is known as 'The Howitzer', the top of which forms the true absolute summit of Helm Crag. It's worth noting that the top of the Howitzer was the only summit in the Lake District that the late great Alfred Wainwright never managed get to the top of. It isn't a massive rock, but it is a tricky climb; I've done it a few times, and I can confirm that it is a little hairy (as I get older, I find I'm now content to stand at the bottom and watch others try).

    As a lover of drawing rocks, this one takes some beating. I love its many surfaces and the textures, formed from lichen and guano, that cover them. How can anyone not like rocks?...`

    Almost all watercolour paintings produced by Peter Woolley are developed from pencil
 sketches made on-site or in the studio. In the course of that development, further working sketches
 are often produced in order to explore the subject and work towards a final, satisfactory
 composition. This drawing is a unique document; if it has been used in the process of creating a finished watercolour, it may contain marks of handling or even spots of watercolour. Such marks should not considered flaws; instead, they should be thought of as an integral part of the character of the drawing. To protect
 its integrity, the artist has signed and dated it on the reverse.

    This original drawing has been produced on 160lb smooth, white paper, with a 2B graphite pencil. For drawing dimensions, please see the main information panel above. The price quoted is for the drawing to be supplied to you unframed, in protective packaging with rigid backing panel, ready to take to a framer. A quote for framed work will be provided on request.
