Living less than a ten minute walk to the great rolling moorland of Dartmoor Devon I venture off up there regularly with my sketch pad flask of tea and our family pet a black Labrador named Bella . This particular day we were met with a stormy powerful sky whilst the glimpse of sun cut through the clouds to unveil the most beautiful colours of the rugged moorland .
In this painting I convey the atmospheric mood of the day.
As always my work is signed C Mottershead my maiden name and painting career name with which I have signed my work for many years.
