I recently started the painting from life (shown in the bottom photograph), by a rookery near where I live. I was sitting near a beautifully evocative graveyard - and I found the whole ambience powerful and inspiring.

This led to the studio painting, which is shown in the first two photographs above - with the currently unfinished in situ painting propped up nearby for reference.

very striking in contrast to your normal colour filled works.. Very cool!

Wow! what a great day. So much life by the graveyard.

It did seem rather comforting all that life at the graveyard.
A strangely nice place to sit and observe.
