On The Edge of Time is a new body of work inspired by a week spent walking and drawing in a revisited landscape.
It was Easter on Dartmoor. The colours were old and deep, battling back from a hard winter.
I responded to the rock formations and prehistoric settlements around Hay Tor, experiencing the constantly changing light play as it hit the colours in the granite and shone through the layers of mist.
Back in my studio I have created paintings which reflect the ancient intensity of colour and light using oil paint and combining ground natural earth pigments. The warmth and power of the vivid reds and oranges in stark contrast with the grey mists and the wild skies.
