The Tower on the Tor
Original pastel painting on pastel paper
Mounted 12x16in (31x41cm)
This pastel painting, The Tower on the Tor, is actually based on a photograph of the Church of St Michael de Rupe, on Brent Tor in Dartmoor, Devon. I wanted a more fantasy 'Lord of the Rings'-type scene, so I created the background mountains, the suggestion of a route up the hillside and the sun-kissed colour of the sky, as well as the bold contrasts in the foreground hill.

All my paintings and prints will be mounted, wrapped in cellophane and protected with cardboard to preserve them. I aim to dispatch your purchase within 2 days (excluding holidays), but as I only keep a limited stock of each print, this may take longer if I need to get another done for your order. I will inform you if this is the case.
