In the early evening the girls go down to the sea for a last adventure on the sand and rocks before bedtime. Shells, crabs, feathers, seaweed, whatever they bring back appears in odd corners to keep the eternal tidy-up going. Some of it is designated their hoard and mustn't be touched.
Vivienne St Clair's beach paintings evoke these mellow days. Timeless and idyllic in their subjects, they remind me of sketches for children's books, coloured with impressionistic light.
