In painting I do not aim to create an image of a particular place. I am inspired by a color palette, and a mood; once I begin the painting takes charge and evolves. In the case of Sultanahmet, although I love the ancient quarter of Istanbul, and have visited it a number of times, I did not try to depict it. Nevertheless, once I was into the work the flavour of that place was apparent and I let it guide the work. Hopefully some of the magic of that city come through.
