Hooe Lake is tidal, found off the southern shore of the River Plym.

It was easily accessed via a gate in the hedge of my back garden into Radford Park.

A short walk would take me, often with my children, to Hooe Lake also known as Dolphin Lake.

Dolphins used to drive shoals of mackerel through the ‘bottle neck’ into the lake.

As the tide dropped, the mackerel would panic and try to escape, then the clever dolphins could feed at their leisure.

I  spent 2 weeks working around the lake, during a cold February in full polar suite, my red oilskins.

I wanted to test, how much colour could I find in a drab brown and grey scene?

This was to further develop techniques acquired at The Painting School of Montmiral in France where I started to learn to exploit my strange colour vision named ‘wild pyrotechnics’ by my mentor, following a personal  breakthrough with the now renowned  “Red Bales (2)“.
