Cranmere Pool, Dartmoor

Description
In contrast to his son’s depiction of Cranmere Pool, William Widgery enhances the colour of the pool, brightening the sky and grass surrounding the shore considerably and allowing the area to look as appealing and pure as it was initially intended before time and tourism wore heavily on the area.
