People often comment on my use of colours and ask me how I decide upon them. I have been thinking about this and I've realised it is by 'osmosis of colour'. I don't actually make any decisions and I don't have a plan, they just sort of seep into my mind.
For example in this picture SIESTA, which is a drawing of a spanish villa we stayed in, I wanted to use my wire pattern to create the feeling of mediterranean light in the heat of early afternoon. So I sort of went there in my body - how it felt to have a siesta in this villa and the colours of the light just came to me.
