The Dancing Cranes of Armana is a watercolour copy of a real stone carving in the royal tomb at Amarna. As we weren't allowed to photograph inside the tomb and anyway the light was terrible, I had to copy it into my sketchbook by torchlight! The painting was done in my studio from the sketch when I returned to England.
It's part of an ongoing project illustrating the wildlife of Ancient Egypt - the first stage will be complete when we publish a book of bird images. I've also been looking into the materials and art techniques that the ancient Egyptians used, and it's fascinating.
