Blakeney I, 2015. Acrylic on canvas, 35 x 45cm.
All my work begins with drawing. I draw most days usually along the coast near the studio and it is these A4 drawings that I use to start the process of painting. I hope that in the studio any image or idea is transfigured entirely into paint. I’m not sure I can really explain what happens in the studio: I start putting paint on the canvas and and after a while the painting begins to enter into some kind of dialogue with you. It is less a matter of technique and ability and more one of faith and perseverance.
