Melody paints in a colourful , contemporary and creative style capturing the heart of Exmoor where she grew up. Her landscape painting reflects the rich colours of Exmoor using thick layers of oil paint applied with palette knife, and scraping this back to achieve the subtle changes in tones of Exmoor. “To know the Exmoor landscape is to love it”, says Melody, “paths through wet green growth growing upwards to meet the sky. The buzzards soar from a height to land within the trees. Ponies graze and with gentle eyes survey the walkers, deer too keep a distant stance or fly away gracefully through the undergrowth. From high on a hill looking down to the sea we feel we’re flying with the birds and the clouds. The colours change with the seasons Viridian, Pink, Magenta, Azure, Cobalt, Ultramarine and Cadmium Yellow for the gorse. Colour sings on Exmoor and the landscape never belongs to man or animal - it simply is”
