Waiting For Spring is an original painting by Sophie Berger. After watching the beautiful Autumnal colours start to fade into the darker hues of Winter on Dartmoor, small hints of colour start appearing in the hedgerows. Moody morning skies with sunlight poking through shine onto the orange ferns and greens of the moors, this is what inspired Sophie to paint this piece. Sophie spends time sketching in watercolours outside, capturing the seasonal colours, then paints onto canvas in Oils back at her studio.
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 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.
