Dancing Cranes is my accurate-as-possible watercolour copy of a real stone carving in the royal tomb at Amarna. I copied the design in to my sketchbook by torchlight! The painting was done in my studio from the sketch and reference photos 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.
