I’m painting a series of landscapes of Dartmoor – the landscape of my childhood. Growing up in Devon on the edge of the moors, I rather took it for granted when I lived there.
On a recent visit to see family, we drove over the moors on a wet day in early January. I took my sketchbook, leaned into the wind and took down some visual references and mental notes.
I’m enjoying the Devon palette of russet browns oranges and reds of the dried bracken and heather, rushes and peat.
