The Gardener
2011

Watercolour on Arches paper.

There was a definite intention here – to paint a figure going briskly about some kind of business.

What the business is and whether the figure is being pulled towards it, or held back, by the little creatures, I am not sure.

The face was modelled loosely on a friend and work colleague.

The title was added afterwards.
