“I’ve always been fascinated by sketches and studies; sometimes I find them more interesting than finished work. Ink and pencil sketches remind me of raw acoustic demos of songs; sometimes those are more compelling to me than big produced tracks. I love the easy gesture here, and McNaught’s shapes, especially in the horses and the people. I could look at this kind of thing all day.”
