When you are young and in love, when everything is new, there is a place where you go in your hearts where nothing else in the world matters but each other. You could talk for days and days about pure rubbish, but it doesn't matter either, as long as you are talking to each other. Sometimes when the world and its problems try to get in between your wonderful relationship, you just want to run away and get away from it all. I think most of us have had dreams of eloping to Gretna Green with our first love to get married. So this piece is really about our young love or ‘puppy love’ as it is sometimes called.

After I have chosen the images I am going to paint, I start by painting the backgrounds. This can take up to about four or five layers of building up and getting the light and shadows right. Then after this has dried, I paint in my background images faintly in white or grey as these should not dominate the page.
As I am going through these stages I am still determining the positions of the main characters and may change direction at any time. Eventually after great thought I am ready to paint in my main character. I block in this with white paint sketching the lines faintly first with white/grey paint as this would be easier to remove if I make a mistake. Eventually when the character is blocked in, I paint in the form in monochrome greys before applying colour to the image. When the image is coloured in, then I intensify the shadows and the highlights very carefully.
