This pastel was made in response to the heathland in my local area of Dorset. I spent time in situ and then re-worked the piece in the studio. The marks follow a journey, within the piece, working through the landscape and in the process of making it. I stopped when I felt I had captured the feeling and sense of the space. Sandy, my dog appeared in the foreground, which in after thought, is kind of sweet as she accompanies me on all my trips.
