This picture is very austere and stripped down – a few marks, a few moves and nothing much to spare. Yet there’s plenty of suggestion still, especially in the ground strokes, and the incompleteness of the blooms. They’re dropping petals, which means they’re just about done.
It’s thrilling when the marks I make almost float on the sheet, become something and yet at the same time seem barely able to hang on to their recognizable shapes. Maybe fleeting is the word I’m looking for. This picture captures a moment. Don’t blink!
