This painting was inspired by the River Lea in Tottenham, along which I often cycle. I'm fascinated by the changing seasons and the reflections created. Sun and wind add further permutations to this idyll in the city. I wanted to capture this hidden world in paint, using the effects of sharp outlines contrasted with loose glazes. I added the figure of my daughter to emphasise the contemplative nature of a world held in water.
