This is an old picture. I began this picture in 1991 in a life drawing class. At that stage it was a simple pencil drawing. Then, a couple of years later I was at university and had access to the Apple computers loaded with photoshop etc. so I acanned in the pencil drawing and began to develop the image by adding colour and building up the background to the extent where foreground and background are of equal importance. I was interested in making abstract colour patterns of sufficient strength to assert themselves next to the human form, while also putting a cool image set within a warmer colour system.
