Well, today’s painting is based on a random vivid memory that I suddenly had a couple of hours before I made this painting. It was a memory of visiting Milton Keynes in 2001. Interestingly, I only know the exact year because I still have the “Sum 41” CD single [anyone remember those?] of this song that I bought that day.
Anyway, when I was leaving the town’s surprisingly large shopping centre, I saw a red-haired woman standing in a water fountain and splashing someone.
This was completely random and – to my (surprisingly stuffy and conservative, despite my tastes in music) teenage self – almost unimaginably free-spirited.
(As a blog exclusive, I’ll also provide a copy of the “work in progress” lineart for this painting.)
