"I would love to say that each painting begins with a set of detailed sketches and colour studies, but for me that isn't the case. As soon as I have a rough doodle, I want to start - I can't wait to get stuck into the painting.
I begin by getting rid of the white canvas, painting the surface with a wash, usually a brown or orange. Then, with a rag, I sketch into the paint, and once I'm happy with that I will block out the shapes and shadows in a dark brown. I usually start this process again with another picture until I have five or six paintings ready for the next stage.I make any changes that are needed and add colour and definition. When this is dry I add glazes of colour over the whole canvas and then paint over the figures again to "loosen" them up.
I like the finished paintings to have a slightly naive, grubby look with lots of energy – which, when I think about it, sums up my childhood!"
