Flying Fish is an original painting by Sophie Berger. This painting is inspired by the river running through the woods near Sophie's house. Watching from the clapper bridge, the river rushes past over the rocks and fish can be seen jumping occasionally. This painting has a feeling of movement, water lapping the shoreline can be seen through the gestural brush strokes and splashes of paint. Sophie often sketches on Devon’s north coast, Exmoor and Dartmoor, taking in the mood of the sky, rolling hills and streams or concentrating on the intricate twisted branches and roots of the bracken. Sophie Berger’s next stage is to recapture these sketches using oil paint when back at the studio in Dartmoor, thereby creating a strong connection between her work and the landscape.
