Dipping depicts a lake sunset scene with swallows. Based on Lake Rotokaeo in Hamilton, New Zealand.
Dipping represents one of my favourite moments to witness- the deep colours of the sinking sun amplified by a gently rippling reflection. Swallows dance on the water and the scene is too fleeting as it inevitably marches on into darkness. This is perhaps why I love painting these kinds of scenes- once marked down by hand the temporal is made permanent.
