As I began to sketch the very beautiful Clampitt Falls a feeling of meditative calm enveloped me, even against the rush of water cascading down it still embraced my senses and once again my childhood seems to imprint onto my surroundings here at Canonteign Falls. I start to wonder how Mole and Ratty would have enjoyed painting and talking here. I’m sure that Otter would have enjoyed a sandwich with me and I imagine us all chatting away about Toad and Badger. They each would fit in well here, even the singing field mice.
Next week I will start to develop my sketches ready for the exhibition on the 27th September.
