“These works are part of a series… done while following the routine of “A painting a day”. These still-lifes use a fairly conventional approach, allowing a predictable and steady rate of execution, which was enjoyable . Also, it meant I could put aside a lot of arbitrary choices and just have as my prime aim to complete each picture in a set amount of time (2 hours). Apart from that, it was peaceful and pleasant to spend the time, whether in the garden while observing the little changes in the scene, such as birds coming and going, or in the country house with its sombre light.” ~ Lawrence McDonell, 2021
