“Creating new images is where I want to be. I love being out in the fields or on the beach taking it all in. The feel of the grasses moving with the summer wind, the roar of the sea on a wild windy day – I take it in and I bring it back to my studio, sometimes I draw on the spot but mostly I like to photograph things and let the ideas and images settle in my head. I rarely paint from these photographs or the initial drawings-I do them and then put them aside, I like letting the paintings work it out for themselves from whatever research I have done. They seem to me to be more natural that way.” Denise French
