The painting location is familiar, but ever variable. Weather and light change. Ships enter and depart from the scene. The tide ebbs and flows. Today there are unexpected swans.
Hugh is the swan whisperer.
He calls the pair onto the beach just like you would call your pet pooch.
When they realize we have no treats for them they depart.
