Barleyheads in The Otter Valley, Devon
Original Ink & Watercolour
This is a very early drawing of Barleyheads. Often, as a child, I would escape from the industrial town where I grew up, into farmland, where enjoyed lying down at the edge of the fields, making drawings of the heads of barley against the sky. When I first came to Devon I included such images in close up in my paintings of the Otter Valley.
