I painted this last summer on location. The sea is behind me, I’m sitting near the top of the dunes looking inland. Its an interesting view – the long grass and heather moves in the wind, mirroring the waves. Whilst I was painting, a couple of horses and riders passed, I put them in lightly and I’m still not sure if they’re right there. They sort of fix the scale of the painting, which I’m not sure I like. If they are staying I probably should put them in with more commitment.
