Here’s a corner of an iPad picture, on the theme of our fine British summers- featuring black shadows and well-watered flora. It refers back to the days when British women went driving in the charabanc or shooting brake in a big hat, chiffon scarf and driving gloves. It’s a bit weird and I think that’s why I like it.

I’m missing painting on my iPhone. I love the translucency of it, and how every mark can be done and redone at super-speed, and how you can add layer over layer…of happy (or unhappy) accidents. It’s so relaxed. This is somebody wearing a chiffon veil, with that very particular vintage colour of salmon pink lipstick. Maybe they’re just about to put on their driving gloves and go for a spin in the charabanc – who knows. They seem to be very stylish and of indeterminate sex. Painted on my iPhone of course.
