"The Pink Wash, Chaffens"
'Often I have enjoyed the good fortune of unexpectedly find an interesting subject..
At Chaffens, a farm near Crest, the great outer door happened to be open as my admiral and I drove past - just a piece of luck as we knew the road well.
Only a matter of minutes later I was painting this big water-colour within the precincts.
Within an hour the, to me, essential figure motive offered itself, that of the two girls renewing the pink wash on the columns.'
Exhibited at The Royal Academy 1962
