Harford Down Bronze Age Cist - Original Watercolour

Original watercolour painting of a bronze age cairn and cist on Harford Down above the Erme river near Ivybridge on Dartmoor.
.
I bumped into this peaceful burial place whilst walking on the moor near my home at sundown one evening. The site was clearly carefully chosen overlooked by prehistoric settlements on the moor across the Erme valley to the North East and turning South and West towards sunsets over the sea. I couldn't imagine a more magical place to be laid to rest.
.
I was keen to try using different techniques to paint this picture to include household items such as cling film, salts and sponges. I used black ink to outline the stones and embellished the hills and stones with copper colour Schmincke Aqua Bronze pigment.
