Dartmoor ponies! Wonderful painting...looks just like I have read about. A harsh place but sometimes beautiful.

Cornwall, definitely agree -- you can feel the wind, love the subtle palette.

I was down that way a couple of years ago and this looks just like the Moors and those hardy little ponies with their long manes and tails. Great job. Jen

Lovely painting - I especially like the last bit of blue sky which looks like it will shortly be covered by clouds!
It's also really nice to see a painting of a landscape that I know - America is too far away, Dartmoor is only half an hour away!!

Lovely evocation of atmosphere, beautiful subtle colours. My absolutely favourite place (after Scotland).

Excellent sense of place here, as others have said! I can feel the cold wind that the ponies have turned away from.
