In this second in a trilogy of films, Tom paints in oils, producing wonderfully observed landscapes in a loose, impressionist manner. He takes his paints to the Somme Estuary in Northern France, where he explores a wealth of subject matter. These include weekend crowds promenading by a river, estuaries and beaches - even an old fashioned carrousel. Tom works quickly on the spot using a small oil pochade, returning to make bigger paintings of the subjects that particularly appeal to him or using these small paintings to work up into large canvases in his studio.
