I’ve been fortunate to be able to go to the Isle of Capri a few times. One of the things I love about the place is the brightly coloured watercraft. The combination of the blue-green Mediterranean and these amazing boats is magical. I’ve made paintings of a few of the boats; it’s a subject that I’m always looking for a way to return to. The arched paintings I’m working on now offered a chance to combine some of the curves of those boats with the curve of the arch.
