Glorious Wild Flowers is an original painting by Sophie Berger. The bold blues are contrasted by the orange flowers creating a striking piece.
“Walking through the fields behind my house leads me to a quiet woodland that backs onto Dartmoor. The grasses and wildflowers come up to my knees, the sun shines through the soft clouds and warms my skin, these days are glorious. Thinking of these moments back at the studio on a wet and windy day is what inspired me to paint this piece. I spend time sketching in watercolours outside, capturing the seasonal colours, then paint onto canvas in oils back at my studio.”
Sophie often sketches on the north moors and in Skaigh woods, 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. The changeable, moody landscapes awash with colour, horizons and the vast openness have inspired Sophie Berger to explore the feeling of being in this environment.
