Despite living close to this amazing spot on the Jurassic Dorset coast, until this January I had never walked there. Celebrating a return to near normal walking after breaking my leg, I set off with walking poles and camera on the loveliest January day – the light had a pearlescent quality to it, the sun was warm and it was hard to imagine that this was mid winter. This is as the sun began to think about setting. I painted this in oils in an impressionist style to try to capture the fractured quality of the light on the water.
