Egg tempera on linen laid onto board.

This is the painting that I started work on in the video, "Pete Swann the movie". I prepared the blue canvas in advance, but was quite flustered by being filmed and started with red, which I wouldn't have done otherwise. But it sort of came together afterwards, so I gave it to Sarah Lewis, who did such a great job of making the film. The full title is "Make your own rules, then break them" because I did things in this painting that I wouldn't otherwise have done. A philosophy to live by, some of the time.
