"I begin each of my paintings with a drawing. This forms the basic structure from which I hang shapes of texture. I find it thrilling to begin a painting of a subject I have experienced in reality in the form of my own visual expression. I watch the picture struggle to develop according to my judgment and also probability. The darker muted colours and a thick mass of paint always feel appropriate."
