SEXY PEAT - First walk out onto the Peatlands

Working on a mixed media painting inspired by the moor
Today I had my first walk out on the moor with fellow Sexy Peat artist Anne Campbell. Anne has lived on Lewis for most of her life and has specialist knowledge of the Peatlands. It was wonderful to be guided through the peat roads, bog and moor, whilst hearing stories and other related information from someone with such passion for the moor. Anne crossed the moor barefoot, effortlessly making her way gazelle-like through the terrain, whilst I trudged on behind, overdressed in several layers, walking boots and gaters.  Once again I am desperate to respond to the moor through images, so plan a studio day today to start the process of transcribing what's in my head.
