Painting: A Devon Rainforest

A Devon Rainforest

For Sale Oil painting by David W Young. 36" X 24".

I was on horseback and riding up hill onto this
 bluff that suddenly exposed the whole majesty of
 this Dartmoor valley. This landscape I now saw
 simply couldn’t be England.
It was too epic, far too wild. It gave
 me a glimpse of the great deciduous forest that
 once swathed these islands.

This painting has no sky, no river. I want you to get lost in it.

I have painted  sunshine breaking through the moist afternoon haze to drizzle
 light on the trees of this deep meandering gorge. The haze on this skin of leaves
 hides a world of dank mosses, ferns & lichens that sheath bent and
 twisted trees which thrust through the piles of granite clitter that are
 in turn coated in this green living  shroud.
