Yvonne by Chantal Joffe (oil on board, 2009)..."I paint in oils and it is a dirty medium. It's sticky, it gets in your hair, on your clothes and it's impossible to get off. Even keeping paintbrushes clean is a challenge. The first time I used oils was at school. I was copying a Rembrandt and the results were this grubby mess."
