David Hockney's years living in Los Angeles clearly influenced his work. He began using acrylic paint and produced some wonderful paintings that really evoke summer.

I admire Hockney's willingness to experiment with a wide range of mediums and techniques,
and of course I've always loved his personal style.

"Style is something you can use, and you can be like a magpie, just taking what you want. The idea of the rigid style seemed to me then something you needn't concern yourself with, it would trap you." - David Hockney
