I did all the background paintings for the film Summer in February and many of the ‘works in progress’ being apparently painted by Laura and Harold Knight (Hattie Morahan and Shaun Dingwall) and AJ Munnings (Dominic Cooper). Incidentally, one or two of the ‘foreground paintings’ e.g. in the Royal Academy scenes and ‘The Morning Ride’, were not done by me!
The film was mostly made in Cornwall and paintings were done in my studio, often at high speed as briefed by the production designer.

and forgive the silly hat! It was very cold when I was being interviewed!
