I started this painting on a Sunday afternoon. Heading out through the woods near my house and up onto the muddy moors. With a cold wind blowing in my face and an Autumnal chill in the air, I quickly sketched the landscape in pencil. The following day I took the little canvas back to my studio, where I painted on top of the sketch in oils to recreate the landscape. The pink sky I was lucky enough to catch before the sun set is the part of this painting I like the most.

New original artwork by artist, Sophie Berger is available with Wychwood Art in their gallery and online. Sophie Berger's recent work has been greatly influenced by her move to Devon and a new found love of the Dartmoor. She 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 Kigbeare, 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 artist Sophie Berger to explore the feeling of being in this environment, so to describe these works as landscapes would be to miss the essence of the places they strive to capture.
