Skinny Dipping The River Dart, Dartmoor
SoldOil painting by David William Young.
Size 40" X 26"
The Rock Band Barclay James Harvest wrote the words ‘Oh , what it is to be young’
in one of their songs.
The idea of this rather nostalgic and bucolic painting came about when I was walking
the Dart one day and I came upon some people sunbathing. The sight of bare human
flesh in this rather wild, green landscape was rather a shock but also striking.
This got me thinking. I wasn’t always as buttoned up as this, not at least when I
was young? Surely?
