On Foulshaw Moss. Oil on canvas board 9"x12"
Coming back from work one evening about three weeks ago I stopped in to Foulshaw moss. I had a little wander around and found four Adders curled up together in the sunshine.The painting was worked up from photos I took at the time. I was determined to keep it simple and try to treat the subject as if I were painting from life. This means simplifying masses, reducing detail and avoiding photographic copying.
