"When ‘Dove Cote, Singleton’ is juxtaposed with its waxed paper negative, it reveals how underexposed the painted-over print had to be. The translucent pigment in the red waistcoat shows no sign of the dark shadow that should be evident in a fully exposed photographic print. Instead, the shadows are created through layers of colours in large brush strokes, and more graphic details are maintained by controlled finer brushwork." (Janine Freeston)
