Pond Revisited

Plein air, oil on board, apprx. 20 x 30cm

A slightly ‘deeper’ and more resolved sketch of the pond up on the moorland at Carn Kenidjack.¬† Hoards of brilliantly coloured dragonflies hunted and chased each other in the breeze, flitting over the water surface in a wild acrobatic dance. The sound of wings rustling and whirring as they collided with each other in mid-flight¬† broken by the wind and the distant call of a cuckoo.
