South Devon Blue Pathway 24
These paintings are a continuation of my Blue Grass/Pathways project, started in 2008. These were never completed and over a period of five years I have periodically attempted to bring them to a conclusion. In May this year, I was walking the coastal path from Wembury to Noss Mayo in South Devon on a beautiful day and the solution presented itself. The sky was blue and cloudless, the clifftops a carpet of riotously-coloured flowers, and everywhere I looked Nature was bursting into life. I immediately returned to the studio to work on these paintings and the result is an interpretation of that day.

This painting is part of a continuing series of paintings where the catalyst has been the act of walking, mainly the tracks and trails of Dartmoor National Park
