An Artist's Response to the Inspiration of one of Devon's Favourite Rivers.
Seen through the eyes of this well-known West Country artist, this book
traces the river's journey through the seasons, from its mouth at Exmouth to
the Cathedral city of Exeter. He takes us to his favourite painting spots -
not just at the water's edge, but also down the deep cut lanes and into the
rich red farmland, the verdant hills and valleys on both sides of the river.
Whether it be boats reflected in the shallows in the glow of a golden
sunset, or thatched cottages set amidst golden fields of ripening barley -
Ray Balkwill's close observation of light and colour make each of his
paintings a sheer delight.
