The Modigliani Postcard, 2014, watercolour 17 x 20 inches.
The collection on the window sill of a few favourite objects, including a black tea caddy and a glass jar filled with some dried seed pods hanging from their stalks, forms a decorative screen in front of the busy jumble of back gardens and beyond them the taller houses with their dormer windows. In pride of place on the window sill is a postcard reproduction of a portrait by Modigliani whose work I admire for its decorative qualities and use of black and brown.
