This was originally done as a sketched idea for a more fully developed commissioned painting. I was happy enough with the painting (of which I no longer have a photograph) though I do remember that it didn’t quite have the zest and energy of this swiftly and playfully produced sketch. The dribbles and splodges of running paint I felt (and still feel) added to part of the spontenaiety of the sketch and I came to deliberately induce these sorts of happy accidents to happen in future work.
