Sculptural clouds blow over the hills of the North Dorset Downs.
A study for this work was made after a fierce storm had ended and fresh air and bright skies lit the landscape.
The title of this work has been taken from lines in a poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins,
'Up above, what wind- walks! What lovely behaviour
Of silk-sack clouds has wilder, wilful- wavier
meal-drift moulded ever and melted across skies?'
