Karoo Series, Study 3

About This Piece

This is one of a series of watercolours made in an area of Africa, which had a powerful impact on me, called The Klein Karoo. I made drawings out on location, brought them back to my cabin and worked on watercolours from the drawings.

Artist Statement

Art depends so much on an artist searching their own feelings and responses to that which they look at. Artists search for a fundamental 'response' and 'truth' to their environment, which then, like a Chinese Whisper, can travel though various stages from one version of an image to the next, paring down to the vital elements. When I'm out in a landscape I'm monitoring, collecting, breathing the place around me and responding in my drawing books. I work rapidly from these drawings, often in a different medium, and from those works I follow on with work in all media back in my studio. Imbued in every location-drawing is a huge amount of memory, and as the paintings in the studio take on their own lives, my strong memories become an integral part.
