dartmoor







yesterday i went down to the brownston gallery in devon. instead of coming straight home i spent the afternoon on the high moor.

autumn seemed to have arrived early in dartmoor. in the late afternoon the sun and the rain fought it out and the ponies and i were treated to rainbows that looked near enough to reach out and touch.

i want to paint all this...and i want to go back...soon.

but before i do i have a flower painting commission to do...today i bought lots of new colours to try.....including these




i hope the lady commissioning the piece meant it when she asked for pink!
