Artist's description:

Following on from "Still Sea Scene", I had some bits of card nearly the same size and I was experimenting (as usual) with using up unused paint on the palette by doing random brushstrokes. Usually these get hidden when I finally used the card/papers for a picture but this time I wanted to paint more quickly so that the image didn't become too "rigid" and also allowed the brushstrokes to show through. I also used an aerosol can to spray over the brushstrokes and this led to the jaundiced, sunset in a polluted world look. The beetle reappeared, and has reached land having abandoned it's feather boat which now floats off towards an unwelcoming horizon. The flower was from next to the greenhouse, don't know what variety, but I had sketched it into my sketchbook so I used it. There's a restricted palette thing just about happening here, as well as a complimentary colour thing between the scarlet/pink of the flower and the beetle, and the emerald green of the feather.
