I love the sea's sounds and the way it reflects the sky. The colours that shimmer across its surface are unbelievable. This, combined with the colour of the water over white sand, surprises me every time.
I have improved the way in which I paint. The colours are cleaner and there is more energy in the brush work.
The lifestyle that an artist can have, the freedom to wander in the landscape with no real pressure or deadlines, was a very attractive one.
I use about 20 different colours to retain the luminance in my work.
My optimism for life carried through my work.
