They've gone big(er) - again. Desire series canvases are 100cm x 100cm - unframed.
I've worked with this size before and really enjoy it. There's lots of room to physically move things around. Painting feels more natural on larger canvases for some reason. There's a freedom. The scale of features, areas of colours and placement was a challenge to start off with. After a number of restarts I got something I liked in the end. I had to play around several times and rework things a lot. It would be interesting to x-ray my work.
I really like the Desire series. It's a group of paintings I'm proud of.
In all the work I do there are favourites. This is one of them - 'The Heart Of Desire'.
