As a landscape painter, contemplating the sky and the effect it has on the landscape is very important. The first thing I do on waking up is look out my window, across to Haldon Hill and Dartmoor beyond, to see what the sky is doing. This morning gentle rain was falling, the sky was a steely grey and dark clouds were forming, creating a beautiful silvery light over the valley. As the morning progressed and I eventually arrived at my painting destination and set up, the sky will have invariably changed. Working on Rippon Tor looking across to Princetown and Yar Tor the sky was the first thing I attempted to paint. I could see the weather coming right at me. One minute I was in brilliant sunshine the next billowing clouds come over and then rain. Painting on days such as these is exhilarating. Walking along the coast with my children the other day I made them stop, stand still, look and listen to what was around them. They thought this a little odd but I tried to explain that this is how I spend most of my time, just looking and listening, and mainly at the sky, as it is the source of light that governs everything around.
