Today's pre-Christmas Sale selection begins with three still lives, then four Catarinense pictures.
These still lives are very difficult to get right: this is partly due to the context in which they are made. When you're painting outside your session is limited by changes in atmospheric conditions; inside, your session is longer and allows reign to any dissatisfaction.
Notions of speed, completeness, spontaneity and instinct are central to the working processes I've developed over the years, and if travel paintings produced in transience develop one aspect of this, then still life develops another.
The year is coming to a close: tomorrow I host a little pop-up exhibition of my pictures up in the north of the island. I shall try to do a little Santa Catarina trip before the year ends: I didn't travel as much I would have liked this year, and I feel seedy as a result.
