I thought I would post a couple of photographs to show what I have been up to since my last post.
I have painted, though not as much as usual and what I did paint has definitely been for the bin - yes -one of those weeks. My head has been full to the brim with ideas and subject matter but unfortunately my hand has not guided it onto the paper well enough. My photos show though that my time has not be entirely wasted as I have tidied up my studio work space, shifted the furniture around so I have the light source better, framed some new paintings and hung them on the wall for future inspiration.
The window and walls have been cleaned from all the paint splatters and the room is organised and ready to mess up again.
My ordered copy of a new book by John Lovett arrived called Textures, Techniques and Special Effects in Watercolor and I have read it cover to cover with much interest and I highly recommend it.
I sold my 1/4 sheet Zebra painting from the current exhibition at Off the Slate Gallery in Willunga on the weekend (similar to the near full sheet size you can see on my studio wall) so not an entirely unhappy time but for me I do need a pleasing painting amongst the discards just to keep my spirits up - so better be tomorrow I say!
