A sunshine break, some inspiration and The Ragged Moth

A little while ago, we all went on a weekend break to a place called Tolleshunt D'Arcy.
Nearby is a Nature Reserve, where we walked, sat, enjoyed the views and the sunshine. You can see a few pics on my other blog HERE

I used one of the photos as inspiration for a painting.
You can see that I left some things out and added others.
We artists have a thing called 'artistic licence' which means to me, I can choose to add or subtract anything to my painting!

So here is what I did. The actual photo is on the other blog.

The Ragged Moth

Painted on St Cuthbert's Mill paper - Bockingford Not 140lb
Used Winsor & Newton AQ paints
Size: 15 x 11 inches


  1. Hi, Pat, I love the mood and the wash in the sky! Cheers, Sadami

  2. Pat - what a serene scene. Looks to me like you selected just the perfect amount to put into this painting. Very beautiful friend. Hope you have a great week-end.
