oil on canvas : Janet Driver painted with a palette knife after walking along these rugged cliffs in Dorset a few years ago...This was an experiment to see how paint could be applied with thick layers of texture by using a palette knife rather than a brush to give the feel of ancient layers of rock and grassy tussocks catching the sunlight... then I tried using the same method on the sea pouring into this cove and splashing up in waves that must have worn down the surface over centuries...however did these cliffs survive ? and how long before the waves break through the cave, leaving an archway into the sea?
