Starling’s Dusk, Walberswick

A lot of courage in this painting, well done!

Thank you for that! I witnessed this scene in February at Walberswick.The long horizontal format seemed so right at first, but I realised as I went on, that by choosing this format I had limited the vertical emphasis of the birds swirling about.

Beautifully painted Elizabeth, what a sight!
