Changing the level of the floor, the Albert Hall, 2010, watercolour, 19 x 23 inches.
On a visit to the Albert Hall, I caught sight of this extraordinary transformation taking place and got permission to spend half an hour drawing from a box. I liked the idea of seeing the team of workmen on two levels, those below in a kind of prison situation, and the fact that they wore a sort of uniform. Most had shaved heads, and the way they moved together in groups pushing heavy trolleys made it all appear rather sinister.
