This is the stunning view of Ladybower reservoir as seen from Bamford Edge in the High Peak in Derbyshire, England. The colours change throughout the seasons (as does the weather!) which adds to the vibrancy of the place. If your timing is good and you reach the top when the weather is fine and clear, you may just get to see this beautiful view in person. This lesson will test your colour matching skills, but with patience and plenty of tea, we should get your painting pretty darn close to the reference photo. So pick up your brushes and let's get started!
