Cod Beck, North Yorkshire by Glenn Marshall

Cod Beck is a small reservoir situated on the very western edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, between Osmotherly and Swainby.
It has some wonderful views as well as a very pleasant perimeter stroll.
These pine trees and their reflections made a perfect subject for this watercolour painted on Saunders Waterford 140lb NOT surface with Windsor & Newton artists paints.

As a painter of light, legend and landscape I am indebted to the wonderful medium of watercolour which gives me the versatility to incorporate many different styles in to my work.
