As a special favour from my friend Keith Collins, I was very privileged to be able to stay at Prospect Cottage, Dungeness (Derek Jarman's former getaway). It was an amazing trip and Derek Jarman's presence was palpable both in the garden and in the cottage! I considered myself incredibly lucky, to have very varied weather conditions, during my four day visit. This is one of a series of paintings about those different lights and moods created by the weather.
I loved this boat and the way the light was playing on it. So just had to paint it!!. It comes with a certificate of authenticity and is signed on the back.
