Late Afternoon


Nicholson, Mary Newcomb, Ann Redpath. But once I start painting I become less conscious of their work and the work becomes my own. You are known for your ‘view from the window paintings’. How would you explain your continued fascination for this subject? It’s something I’ve painted for almost ten years. I never get tired of painting it. There’s so much scope: the different backdrops, the places which give you different palettes, for example the warmth of Andalucia or the cold of


Dartmoor in January. Then the interiors with their seasonal flowers, the lovely jugs and mugs that I keep discovering. There’s also the narrative that we just mentioned. They’re constantly changing and evolving. In what way would you say they have evolved? I’d say they’re richer. There’s more detail, more resonance, so more depth and confidence I suppose. As I get older, I get more confident in my work.


You’ve also painted some beautiful fish paintings for this exhibition. Yes, I always try to go on holidays to places that might inspire me. A few years ago I went to the Alhambra palace and gardens in Grenada and I saw these fish swimming in ponds and I stored it away. Of course, I’m aware of artists such as Monet and other who painted fish. I did some a few years ago, then I was at a local nursery, Hill House and I saw the pond and I thought why not.

Fishing


Do you have any favourite paintings from the show? I’m pleased with ‘Washing Day, Andalucia’, and the stillness of the ‘Late Afternoon’. The fishermen mending their nets seemed to work well too and I enjoyed painting the fish, loosening up and exploring different colours. But we’ll just have to wait and see what other people think!
