Road to Bishops Tawton.

IMG_5053 copyAnother painting inspired from a trip to the back and beyond of Bishops Tawton nr Barnstaple, North Devon.  Just love that stark winter light and reflections in the puddles on the roadside.  Experimenting with a muted palette here consisting of Paynes Grey, Coeruleum Blue, Yellow Green, Raw Umber, Titanium White, Flesh Tint & Raw Sienna.  Just can’t wait for that spring warmth and sunshine to arrive.  Mixed media of acrylic and pencil on gesso board 610 x 610mm.

Backroad to Bishops Tawton.

IMG_5033 copyWent to collect a shoe rack from a couple in the back and beyonds of Bishops Tawton nr Barnstaple.  After getting rather lost on a few detours I found them and collected said shoe rack.  On the way back to the main road I had to stop the car and take a few photographs of weird and wonderful trees.  This one with it’s water swamped road caught my attention.  Love the skies reflection and decided to make the tree somewhat cephelopodic in shape.  Acrylic & pencil on gesso panel 610 x 610mm.  More trees to come.  Al
