Preparing for my next exhibition in Devon I have painted the scene you can see here. It shows a beautiful rock formation at Hound Tor on Dartmoor.
Wikipedia tells us that Tors are landforms created by the erosion and weathering of rock. It is considered likely that tors were created by geomorphic processes.
It is thought that the Dartmoor granite was emplaced around 280 million years ago, with the cover rocks eroded away soon afterwards, exposing it to chemical and physical weathering processes.
Dating of 28 tors on Dartmoor showed that most are surprisingly young, less than 100,000 years old, with none over 200,000 years old. They probably emerged at the start of the last major ice age.
The painting is 30x40cm in acrylics on wood.
