When I started this experimental study the tide had started rising, which not only dramatically altered the foreground but also meant that by the time I “finished” it, I was standing in foot deep, choppy ocean water a long way from dry sand and trying not to drop anything as I packed up my mobile easel. The birds were also long gone by then.
