A spell of fine weather in April 2015 led me to create Near and far, Mawgan Porth ( http://www.hendersonsmith.co.uk/near_and_far.html ). It was of course the resonating patterns of sand and sky, near and far, that gave me my theme here. The mackeral sky phenomenon that tends to happen when the settled air of a high pressure system is not far away echoed the ripples in the sand, inviting comparison. On the other hand the warm – cool colour relationships of foreground and background emphasised distance. In this way identity and difference could both play their part.
