This week I’ve been staying in a little beachside town in Estonia called Haapsalu which is the most gorgeous, inspiring town for painters. It’s a flat, reedy landscape with a lot of sky and an old town going back to the 13th century. It’s very tranquil and I felt like getting out the watercolours. The pictures aren’t that tranquil though. Must be me. Well I know it is. I find it incredibly hard to be tranquil and serene in my work and in my life probably. Though when I’m actually doing the artwork I’m at my most tranquil. A paradox.
