FOX & ROOK IN WHISTMANS WOOD
This print started life as a painting which grew from sketches made whilst walking on Dartmoor. I'd seen photos of Whistmans Wood and always wanted to visit it. It's part of the forest that once covered Dartmoor. Not accessible by car the wood is protected because of its lichen that grows on the multitude of smooth boulders from which twisted oaks and rowans reach side ways rather than up! A weird place and one of my favourites. Legends abound and the wood is supposed to be haunted.
