My daughter always asks me what my favourite colour is, and I struggle to give her an answer. The truth is I don’t really have one favourite because for me attraction to colour is all about proportion and context. The people I admire the most as colourists use surprising colours in unexpected combinations and situations I make very modestly scaled paintings, but I aim for them to have impact from across a room and colour plays an important part in that. I’ve chosen strong colours not because I don’t like neutrals or subtlety but as a point of difference. I think there’s a kind of bravery in making a bold colour choice.
