This piece was painted live in front of an audience at the Humber Street Sesh 2015 in Hull, England where I live and work.
I love doing paintings with a limited colour palette. And this was an experiment with colour and value as much as anything else.
As for the subject, I wanted to do something dramatic, with a sense of energy and dynamism. I started to rough out the big forms and shapes before the concept was fully formed in my mind. The final painting is an examination of our relationship with fear, and the contrast between the child and monster drives this piece.
