"I am what I am. I am a Neo-Expressionist painter. I rarely plan a painting or do a preparatory drawing. I commence the work with a quick wash of strong primary colour and then begin to hurriedly paint figures - people, animals and hybrid creatures. I add crude marks for volcanoes, hills, sea, buildings, boats, clouds, sun and moon, working with vibrant impasto. The painting forms, and informs me as to what it is. The last stroke is always the title. Above all I prize spontaneity, colour and a good dose of irony. I love being a painter." - Ewan McDougall, 2011
