There was one thing that really gave me pleasure about this picture. I’m a slow worker, every brush stroke, every splash and dribble has been splashed and dribbled a dozen times over in an attempt at casual spontaneity. The drum selflessly endured this routine. The background had been re-worked time and time again. But then came a magic and unexpected moment; with one flick of a white line the drum suddenly filled itself up with water!
