I've taken my light box and and work-in-progress and transferred my studio for a few days to Kent where I'm house -sitting one dog, one nephew, six quails and some hens. I'm close to the Stodmarsh bird reserve where cormorants roost and nest in dead trees that rise out of the water. It has a primordial atmosphere.
...just seen the fox go by. It'll be feeding its cubs and knows exactly where the quails and hens live. The last time I house sat here I was late locking them in and they were all taken.
