Rainbow at Hoober Stand

Views around Wentworth  IV

This painting is a reflective view of Hoober Stand during a short sharp shower.
Hoober Stand is a Fitzwilliam Folly built to the north of the village of Wentworth.
From the top, on a clear day you can see York Minster - well so I'm told. 
I have taken shelter amongst the trees around there on many occasions.
Measuring 10" x 6.5" on canvas board, this acrylic painting is #13 of 52.
One a week for a year - enjoy.


  1. Have you ever been to the Top of Hoober Stand? They iopen it on Sunday afternoons in Summer (after Spring bank ) the views are astounding. Great picture.

  2. I have serious issues with heights too - but I did manage this. Hope you pluck up enough courage. x

  3. A fine picture which nicely brings out the colours which I remember from the time I lived in South Yorkshire. There is a tendency to think of it just as a land of grey fields and black clouds, but when the sun gave life to the landscape it could be very beautiful.

  4. Thanks for stopping at my photo blog. I've enjoyed checking out your many paintings. You do great work!

  5. Well Mister D...this is a cheerful painting. AND, I particularly like your self portrait! It IS a self portrait isn't it???

  6. What a wonderful blog!

    You're a "Paid up member of the Acts of Random Kindness society"? Well then, Sir, we are kindred spirits!

  7. What a wonderful project you've set up for yourself! I just finished a photo a day for a year and that definitely keeps you tuned in to your art!
