Above Widdecombe in the Moor, Dartmoor

Above Widdicombe in the Moor

I shall probably knock down the fence to allow the viewer into the painting. It can be a problem having a wall or fence running across the foreground in a painting, i often knock them down or insert a gate.

This is really well drawn, I like the fence it’s as is ,a thing I like to see.

Extremely good sketching. Like the simplified style and think the fence is not that big a problem as it leads the viewer down the path.

Yes, Paul and Richard, once i have done the initial drawing for the painting ,i will look at it again and also as the fence will go in at the end of the painting, i can make that decision. As it falls away it does not compete with the centre of interest.

I like this and would agree with Richard too

Thank you for your comments, Heather, Richard and Paul always helpful to get other painters ideas

Hang on Studio Wall

B4 Pencil sketch. This scene is on the Two Moors Way, Dartmoor, which connects North Devon's Exmoor to Dartmoor in the south. I did not have long so have simplified the scene somewhat. I shall do a watercolour in the next two weeks.
