An original oil painting with gold leaf by Sophie Berger. This painting was inspired by trips to the North Devon coast in the beginning of Summer. Taking a break whilst walking along the coast path with her dog Wolfie, Sophie sketched the sun gleaming through the dark clouds of an approaching thunder storm. Taking this study back to her studio on Dartmoor, Sophie then used it to paint this piece. Oil paint give this painting a richness and depth whilst the gold leaf reflects the natural light like nothing else. This is a soft and still painting with a deep energy.

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.
