Painting Workshop in Peak District

I attended a painting workshop by the famous English Watercolour painter Peter Woolley on 27-28 September in Hartington, Peak District area. Went outdoors on first morning and did some sketches of a barn nearby and in the afternoon went along with Peter in painting the same. Couldn't finish by 5.00, so carried into the second morning which was very gloomy to go out. But by the time we finished, sun came out and went out for sketching the stonewalls which are part of the landscape here. After which Peter showed us how to paint the stonewall, there was just time enough for that! Here I post all the work I did as also Peter's. I finished the stone wall painting today. The first one is the painting by Peter Woolley as well as the sketch below(4th image).
