Art Nature & Granite
So whose a lucky girl, when Dartmoor National Park received an email from 8 Norwegian men from Tromso enquiring about mud racing, skydiving, cricket and landscape painting among other English pastimes, …..ah send that to Amanda.
What a fantastic day we had, a Grand Day In, as the wind and rain on north Dartmoor was 48 mph! We painted, walked, explored Gidleigh, laughed a lot, shared a traditional Norwegian lunch together and painted some more, we even had an exhibition. It was all filmed, so my 15 minutes of fame will be in Tromso. What good sports they were.
Environment & Engagement
A FUN day at Yarner Woods on the Granite Elements Project. Members of Bovey Tracey Society of Artists were inspired to create. We walked and explored gaining a sense of place. The bird song, the character of the trees, the strength of the granite. We talked of poetry, geology & history and how it informs our making. AND the joy of seeing M, at 85 years, able to join us in our outdoor workshop. Thanks Albert at Natural England for the Landy!

Dartmoor Palette #2
Out again on the Granite Elements Art Walks. The difference in colours in one month. Foxgloves are just finishing, heather and gorse appearing. Yellows of tormentil and bracken turning… Add in the colour of the wild bilberry. A warm breeze and a good 5 minute shower. More research in the bag. Thanks to all who came along. Looking forward to the Autumn berry one!!
