Finding better ways to connect visual language with words is one of the central ideas behind Regular Marvels. Each project therefore has its own visual approach, intended to create a dialogue with the text. For Winter Fires, I’m working with Mik Godley. a wonderful painter and an old friend, to create some portraits of the people involved.
This portrait, of the contemporary dancer Colin McLean, is the first of the series that will eventually appear in the book. This version is still unfinished. It has been done on an iPad, from a photograph taken at our meeting in September.
