Tom starts a painting with a one-dimensional idea of colour and form and gradually establishes a structure and colour key, describing his work as ‘reaching for something hovering behind the surface of the drawings’. The paint is applied thickly, soaking brushes in pots of paint rather than a palette. Then reworking the paint, scraping it back with chisels or small planes of wood.
