When you visit Dartmoor you are sometimes overwhelmed by the vastness and the scale of everything, huge skies, vast lumps of granite and thousands of acres of heather, bracken and stone walls. In this series I have stripped away all but the Tor. The beautiful architecture and form is revealed without distraction. This painting has a companion tree which would have been hard to leave out.

This is just a small part of Ravens Tor, Dartmoor, some of the Tors are spread out over quite a large area. This isnt a man made structure although I have been asked how long it took to build this! The painting is one of a series of studies of the Tors in isolation. I have tried to keep the detail to a minimum to give more of a sense of texture and atmosphere. All my work is painted with just four colours and these are the colours I see on Dartmoor.

This is Littaford Tor which is really a series of tors and outcrops. It is a stunning place for me to paint as it forms a long ridge so  there is ample reference material. Painted with just four fine quality artist watercolours, these give me, when mixed, all the colours I see on Dartmoor. In this painting the Tor, isolated from all around, ireleases its stunning beauty.

This is Hunt Tor,Dartmoor, Two vast main outcrops of granite with an avenue between. There was in Victorian times a huge peat (for fuel) mine. The track for the carts can still be seen between the outcrops. The granite can be many different colours depending on the seasons and the weather, we are creeping into Autumn here.  Again in this painting I have concentrated just on the Tor so the viewer is not overwhelmed. Using just my limited palette I have drawn attention to Hunt Tors  majestic strength and power dwarfing its surroundings.
