The original colour inspiration for this canvas , was the beautiful blossom on the red horse chestnut trees , surrounding the studio. I also wanted to use fragments of treasured charcoal drawings. I began the canvas in red collage and paint, white followed with small areas of blue. The combination of colours I think looks very American , and jazzy. Gold leaf was also added.
