Last Light at Hound Tor, Dartmoor
We sat at Hound Tor and watched the sun go down. The hills take on an orange and pink glow as the sun gets lower. I sketched the outline of the granite tor and the boulders strewn around its base.
Back in the studio I used gum arabic where the sun reflected off the edge of the tor. This makes the rock glisten just like it does when the low sun strikes the edge of the outcrop.
