Horizon's Silver Lining

Another different perspective on the waters at Dozemary Pool with just a hint of the land mass.

Studies of Dozemary Pool on Bodmin Moor

Dozemary Pool 1. I enjoyed working in a looser style with more emphasis on the colour.

Dozemary Pool 2. I much prefer the extra contrast in the cloud formation

This is a better reproduction of the painting with its deeper tones.

I'm not going to change this painting any further.

Dozemary Pool 3. This painting was really to try and bring out more warm colours with softer tonal range.

Chose to paint over the darker area of horizon but still feel there could be a tone or two to add.

There we have it. Just a slight hint of an horizon in pale blue.

Yesterday I had been working on this painting of Dozemary Pool on Bodmin Moor which is very near the famous Jamaica Inn at Bolventor. Its a particularly flat and baron area but I like the association with the Arthurian legend of the sword of Excalibur thought to have been lost in its waters.
