‘July on the Maniototo’. Egg Tempera. 585 x 750mm. 1975. Private Collection. “In the initial drawings, the railway goods shed was sheltering a wagon covered in an orange tarpaulin, and I painted it that way; but after some unsettled weeks wondering why it didn’t seem to work, I took it out. Instantly the feel changed from one of ‘shelter from the storm’ to a far more bleak and lonely notion, and much the better for it. A perfect example of trusting painterly instinct over truth and reality. My paintings are so often exercises in dishonesty.” GCS
