Changing light across Dartmoor

Landscape oil painting of Dartmoor by contemporary British landscape painter Matt Harvey, available for purchase framed on my website

This painting sums up my painting practice at the moment. I’m interested in the moment of change itself. Here the change from light to shade, and the kaleidoscopic colours that result across the hills on Dartmoor in typical English weather. I loved painting the blues and deep violets against the ochres and umbers in the shadows. I love colour! That’s why I love painting. This is all painted in a looser style than my pointillist paintings, and I feel more comfortable painting in this way. Its faster, in the sense that I can record my feelings more directly. Its for sale, as well as other work, in my shop.
