Skinny Dipping The River Dart, Dartmoor

For Sale Oil 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?
