I've painted figuratively for most of my career, but from time to time I create narratives that have a more bucolic sensibility. I was on holiday in Devon last summer and noticed the brightly marked sheep in the landscape. I enjoyed the contrast of the grey, rugged and wild landscape with the almost industrial blue that jumped out at me. I enjoy creating strong narratives within my painting but fundamentally there has to be a strong aesthetic element to the work and this piece is driven by the aesthetic of contrasts.
