Pigments that have a relationship to the South West of England and particularly its coast, the area where Needham grew up, and the place she longed for during lockdown. In the summer of 2020 and 2021 when travel was allowed she visited Hampshire, Wiltshire, Somerset, Cornwall and Dorset, researching pigments and collecting materials direct from the land.
