  • 'Over the years the paintings became increasingly internalised and cryptic. People were eliminated and inferences played an ever greater part. The colour strengthened. Robust pinks, singing yellow, pea, baize and dulled emerald greens obviated the need for outlines.'
    —Will Feaver

    'One's always been taught in art school that all relationships and colours should blend, affected by one light. But that can make for very dull painting. Does nature blend? I think that people have no difficulty in blending everything together.' —Patrick Caulfield
