Dan is featured in this week's Country Life magazine in their regular feature 'My Favourite Painting'.

The painting Dan has chosen is Samuel Palmer's Early Morning, of which he says;

‘I find the hyper-real and dreamlike quality of this work compelling. It feels modern in its boldness. Capturing that moment of dawn half-light when your eyes strain to see detail, it is obsessively intricate in its observations. Each blade of grass, each leaf and branch, each stone and seed show that the artist is someone with an intense feeling for Nature and landscape. The skill in realising so much variation in light and shadow in monochrome is breathtaking ’
