Various sources assert that Doig creates many of his scenes from photographs. According to an article in W magazine, Doig notes that the places he has lived and spent time often are incorporated into his work; however, only as an afterthought. He often depicts scenes from unusual angles, and incorporates unorthodox colour combinations and even has been said to bring in a sort of indie film perspective. These tactics all contribute to the heightened moment that Doig’s work exudes, just as our own memories try and hold on to moments of significance as well.
