I found it hard to settle and paint because of the heat, so I jumped in and swam for 20 minutes. After that I could concentrate, I should do that more often. This spot on the river West Allen is a steep scramble down the bank behind my studio.

Painted last summer on location over a number of three hour sessions on days where the forecast was similar. The tide was always at a different stage which kept it interesting. On one of the days there was a pod of passing dolphins.
