'The moment I look at an empty canvas I think of a still life. Looking around the studio they are all still life paintings except the one on my easel. Today suddenly I thought 'why not put a bit of landscape in....it just suddenly occurred to me it would be so interesting and a relief to break out from all my still life work. Sometimes the eye needs to travel into a landscape. I may put some fruit and a white dish in the foreground later though'.
