Date Painted: 2010 , Edinburgh & Devon
Seaside is the first painting in my spotted series experimenting with painting over old paintings. Here, I have gone over an old but tired 1997 favourite called Homage to H (Howard Hodgkin). Using slow drying oil-based paint, I coated the entire painting in a rich yellow ochre to offset the blues, pinks and yellows of previous layers, and rubbed out holes through a circle stencil.
