Usually I make a point of only working from my own photos and source material, but sometimes an exeception is made. This is a pastel which I did from a photo lifted from a friends facebook page. I wanted to do a painting as a suprise present for her - a risky undertaking but I was inspired. Its an area I know from my childhood and she has come to know from walking weekends and sailing trips, Old Harry Rocks near Swanage in Dorset and part of the Jurassic coast. Handing it over and watching as recognition gradually dawned on her was priceless and either she is the best actress in the world or she really liked it.
