To conclude (for now anyway) being inspired by old family slides, I have painted in oils a copy of a slide of me, Mum and my brother Paul. We are sitting on the sea wall at Sutton-on-Sea. I think it’s 1958. My intention was to capture the quality of the Kodachrome colour and the brightness of the sun. Comparing the two images below, I see I could have used more contrast in my oil painting.

This is the slide I worked from:
