. ‘After the Fall’ was a difficult painting to create. The site is in Rostock, a former East Germany city. Rostock was bombed in WWII and the citizens left the broken bells at the base of the bell tower to show how war tears apart people’s lives, all people. I wanted to commemorate their sense of humanity. This piece proceeded slowly as I felt my way forward, using gesso and watercolours to create hard surfaces and sharp edges against a soft background of snow and muted colours.
