Every year I spend a week or more living on the Isle of May in Scotland where I paint and sketch some of the 50,000 puffins that breed there. This year, lockdown prevented me from going but I worked up a series of paintings from my sketchbooks and made a conscious decision to use the same field painting processes and materials as I would use if painting directly from life to try and capture the immediacy and excitement of actually being there.
