Towards the end of the year one wants to look back and see how the work has been developing, trying to see whether there are clues as to direction. I was walking this morning and had to smile:the light was so very sharp and tonal changes severe but at the same time there was a subtlety in the undergrowth that made me realise that there is much to work with . So I stood for a long time just looking with the intention of trying to bring what I was seeing back with me - I had deliberately walked without taking a camera - and use this information to give more layers to the two current paintings.

I came into the workshop one morning and realised that it just wouldn't do so I had to remove a lot of what was there and plod on- nothing new I know ,think Auerbach, Kossoff, but never-the-less I needed to change things and this is it for now.
