It’s easy to stick with what you know and sometimes takes a bit of effort to keep things progressing. I purposely set aside the time to fit in this painting, challenging myself to create something different to my current style. I wanted to try and paint with more freedom than usual and try not to get too caught up in the details. I thought a lot about the light and the composition and moved as fast as I could to keep the work energetic.
I’m pleased with the end result and am certain I’ve learnt a lot from the piece which I will be able to carry forward into future work.
