"Gadgies come in all shapes and sizes. This old fella is one of the oversized variety and is finding the journey hard going on his wee bike. In an attempt to either make him lose his balance and fall off or simply to keep his master company. this faithful old mutt is his travelling companion."

Alexander Millar
After Iíve chosen a figure from my many sketches and photographs it is transferred to my canvas and blocked as a dark silhouette. Each layer of paint is then added gradually to separate tones; the figure is almost complete before the background colour is added.

Having lived in the northern half of Britain all my life I try to capture the subtle light that is particular to that part of the country. The under painting is predominantly blue and then each subsequent layer added is a touch warmer than the last and lifts the painting giving the misty almost ghostlike quality to the background. When this is complete the dark figure leaps out of the canvas. To finish off and give the figure movement I leave the painting for approximately a week and then I take away some of the background colour and feather the legs and soften any harsh edges. Iíll leave the painting in view for a few days in order to see if any adjustments are needed Ė they usually become apparent to me by then.
