The Gossips


I'm not one of those artists who paints whatever is in front of them. Instead, I tend to paint from memory and from scribbled ideas in my notepad. For example, the inspiration for this watercolour came whilst wandering down deserted alleyways and piazzas in one of Venice's less touristy districts. I made a mental note of their postures, clothes (including a pair of super fashionable sunglasses worn by one of them) shopping baskets and general interaction. They were sorting out the problems in the world and doing a very good job of it.

  1. Beautiful illustration. Do you find that no matter what you are drawing or painting, looking at it later, you can remember exactly where you were when you painted it? That happens to me.

  2. Yes, Julie, that's the same with me. Sometimes I can even remember the music I was listening to or the radio programme or what was happening in the news at that particular time. It's strange, isn't, how our brains make these odd connections?
