Using his etchings and paintings as a "visual diary," the author takes the reader on a journey revealing his motivations and personal experiences at the time the work was produced. The paintings and etchings are illustrated in full colour, and span a period of little more than thirty years, (1975 to 2009). Interspersed between the illustrations are essays on Oils, Perspective, Pigments, Photography etc., which describe various discoveries and innovations that have affected the way artists express themselves.

In the preface, Robin Wall traces scientific developments over the last two hundred years that have profoundly altered the way we think about ourselves and our relationship to the universe. He argues that this paradigm shift should be a strong motivation for artists of all stripes, and could result in a new form of Romanticism. In this regard he examines the original Romantic movement and what he sees as a far sighted vision amongst some of its members.
