A walk on the moor

Colour mixing for autumn colours

Paint form and aerial distance

I return again to Bodmin Moor in the month of October and revel in the anticipation of creating the final painting in my four seasons series. Each painting is of the same stunning view, my back to the Hurlers standing stones, just outside the village of Minnions. Light, colour and structure, seen through the eyes of an artist, replenish them with inspiration and as the late morning mist lifts I realise anew that autumn can motivate me like no other season. My eyes feast on hues of reds, golds, greens and ambers, and my creative juices flow.

Working with Atelier interactive acrylics as before, I set my outdoor easel at a comfortable working height. Using a 16x20in. medium-grain pre-stretched canvas, my palette loaded with paint, a large water container hung on the easel and with brushes and rags to hand, I’m ready to begin.
