"At first I would paint a shape that I would 'see' there. That one colored shape in that canvas would work, or fit. The next shape would come from the feeling of the first plus the canvas. This process would continue until the last shape completed the picture.

The structure making is of prime importance. Until this is right nothing further can be done. After the picture works in line the shapes 'become' colors. I answer the hunch as it comes."

- Frederick Hammersley (1919 - 2009)
