My favourite paintings (an occasional series)

This is Pegwell Bay, Kent – a recollection of October 5, 1858 by William Dyce. We have a copy of it above the fireplace in the living room – I love the quality of the light and the almost photographic detail. I never knew until earlier this year (when a very knowledgeable friend pointed it out) that there’s a comet in the sky – it’s barely visible, just the faintest white streak.
