Colour Sketch - Lake District

Article text
“Colour Sketch – Lake District” is brought to you by Irena Grajewska-Armstrong and her husband Steve Armstrong. Colour Sketch is a set of eight sketch sheets of classic Lake District landscapes hand-drawn in light grey line, then printed on 250gsm paper so you can colour in whatever media works for you: watercolour, pencil, acrylic, pen and ink etc. Create your own work of art.

In the pack you will find a booklet with my photographs of the landscapes. Steve has written some background information about the geography and history; and gives you OS grid references and postcode for the location – so you can work from the photograph or go to the view and work live in the open air; or look up the view on the internet to see it in different seasons and light.

We hope you enjoy Colour Sketch as much as we enjoyed drawing the sketches and putting together the information.

Colour Sketch is available in shops across Cumbria but if you’re not in the county you can pick up a copy online:
