"There are so many pictures in my head waiting to emerge, I know life won't be long enough to complete them all, no matter how much time there is left -and I rage inwardly if interrupted. I would, if I could, demand the following while painting is in progress: 1) Silence from everything and everybody within ten miles, especially telephones 2) A supply of: delicious food and drink at regular intervals, tubes of oil paint in every shade that never run out, pristine brushes, absorbing radio programmes. But as it is I have to make my own beans on toast and deal with life while painting, just like everyone else.
Each picture begins with a sketch on canvas. Once I'm happy with the basic composition I begin mixing colours and developing the tones I'm going to use within the painting. I'm addicted to oils and like many painters build up the layers to achieve depth and luminosity of colour and texture. There are always three or four pictures on the go at once - I work very intensely with each painting and it's good to be able to break from one to another."
