During a painting and sketching trip out with Rex Preston, we came across this wonderful scene in North Yorkshire on the border of the Lake District. Cautley Spout is in fact the waterfall buried in the deep crevice in the mountain scape in the background just to the right, it can just be seen in the full sized print. The main modification to the actual scene was the road that ran across the scene was painted out by extenuating the middleground hedge to hide it from view. We followed the path that ran from the farm winding its way up to the spout and over the top. The first offer of purchase for the original painting didn't go through because the potential buyer eventually thought the dark background mountains were too frightening! They made the picture for me.
