View from the Top Path


View from the Top Path
33 cm x 24 cm, pastels on acid-free coloured-ground ‘Canson’ paper.
Date produced: 1986 - 1987

Drawn on-site, from the path along the top of Witton Bluff. This path winds its way around through gaps in small bushes and rock ledges up on the top lip of the bluff. When you stop, and can drop your concentration on having to follow the path safely, you notice interesting views of rugged forms, with the vast rich blue sea as an inspiring backdrop. This pastel is the result of two sessions of work from the same position, on two different days during the same time of the day.

I have always liked the sense of space and the sea from this pastel.
