'Pastoral Study' is an original which depicts the colouring of the light as it falls on the earth, in rich pools of turquoise, gold, mahogany. Two trees, bookends, enclose the horizon.

Due to David Bez's experience in glasswork, he utilises a ‘faux vitrail' finishing glaze, a specific type of translucent yet bold glass paint like that found on stained glass. Next, Bez applies oil varnishes and silicates in sections of the painting to cause light to interact with each section differently, which adds depth and luminosity.
