Having been a decorator for the past 30 years, I look, by default, for line, shape, form and profile; it’s habitual by now and it happens naturally. I see things that way, though not necessarily all the time.
I found myself wandering around a walled garden in North Yorkshire at the weekend and amongst the serried ranks of cordon trained apples and tight lines and shapes, a meadow had been created in part of the garden and as you can see, it was random, both in the planting and the execution. Grass gives a wonderful backdrop to high intensity colouring and I just loved the tulip colours against this. Not regular, not tamed, but offering an amazing view.20140430-092841-pm.jpg
