"'Race Day' is placed in Devon - on the River Teign. I paint places where I have an emotional connection and can explore ideas from personal history to classical references to the process of painting itself. The race is part of Shaldon Regatta - and just full of energy. Structura is a paste which has been applied to the surface of the paper to provide texture as part of the painting process."
