Yes, a yellow handbag. Seems insignificant and somewhat girly/ bourgeois as subject matter, but it’s a key possession for me as it carries everything necessary for functioning. And I love the yellow colour. The yellow of Gauguin and van Gogh. My favourite colour.
Started with sketches.
Then made drawings of layers on tracing paper.
Then cut layer 1 and printed 15 copies (Never sure how many to do!) using yellow mixed with just a touch of red and white to give it a bit more body. I was undecided what kind of background to do. Detailed ? too fussy and distracting. Tiles? Likewise. Plain yellow? Boring. Horizontal lines maybe. Decided on a sunburst design- a cross between a Chairman Mao propaganda poster and the wrapping of a Tunnock’s caramel wafer, which I though would give it the air of an iconic status….
