This piece began as a doodle, just a few strokes with a coloured pencil here, and a few strokes there. I even used a rather scrappy piece of paper. But then I thought: “Why not keep on and try to make something out of it?” Then there was a moment when I thought I’d messed it up completely and considered putting the whole thing in the bin. However I kept on drawing, filling in paint and adding strokes and the background. And in the end, I didn’t feel too bad about it.
