I was in Hastings on a day in Autumn and the sea was very stormy but despite this there was a lone duck picking away at the sand oblivious of this. It like a script for a story which became the subject of my painting the 'lone duck' of which I painted 2 at different day light.
This is an impressionist painting which also allowed me to capture the emotions of the force of nature water waves coming together in tremendous force the duck a bastion of tranquility.
I used a square canvas as this allows a concentration of both colours as well as its division.
