Virtually all our work evolves from in-the-field experience, with inspiration coming through the behaviour of the subject or a moments change of light.
The beach at Hillhead is one of my favourite places to paint. On a low-tide granite sarsen stones (deposited during the retreat of the last ice-age) are exposed and the area around them becomes a feeding area for shorebirds, in this case Ringed Plovers. The essence of this picture came from strong dramatic low-light bouncing off birds, seaweeds and rock, sometimes merging them as one and for a brief moment the Plovers become just pebbles on the shore.
If you're expecting words of wisdom from Dan and Rosemary you may be sadly disappointed. However, if you want to keep up to date with our current projects then pick up the feed at the top of this column.
