Last weekend we revisited the natural unspoilt beauty of the Heddon Valley at Heddon’s Mouth, Exmoor. Fabulous spring weather in this steep wooded valley, with the continual sound of birdsong and rushing water from the fast-moving stream. At the bottom was the open sea running into a secluded rocky bay. We went back to the Hunter’s Inn at the top of the valley afterwards, where we sat comfortably chatting over lunch and refreshments, about art, nature, life and all that. It was good to be all together in such lovely surroundings and lovely weather.
“I was very taken by the contrast in the valley and the bay settings. The colours of these two sites came up for me and I did two quick paintings on site reflecting this.
I used stream and sea water respectfully.”
