‘Coat, Tulips & Jug’, 2020
(self-portrait, oil on board, 29.7 x 23.5 cm)
I wanted this painting to look soft and slightly hazy like a memory or an old photograph so I used a hog bristle brush to gently blend the edges of the forms into one another.
I felt a rare sense of joy when painting this so I've become quite attached to it. I think I particularly like painting fabric.
