This is a commission based on a photo that was taken in 1973.

The saturated colours of photo prints during that time creates such a rich colour palette full of bold colours and contrasts. Everything feels warm and golden.

I love this composition - the big billowy clouds in the background and the wind-whipped hair on a bright sunny day. I’d love to know what the children have seen out at sea and what the boys are holding in their fists.

The atmosphere between the four children is light and free - they all seem to be nudging each other to share the experience of what they’re seeing.
