I spent practically the whole day in the garden! When I finally came in it certainly felt like it too! Nothing much of a creative nature done except a few lines of writing during the evening.
A return to oil painting (although I had forgotten to get all the colours I wanted on Saturday – this comes from leaving the list in your studio!). I painted the first of the A4 landscapes: OBSTRUCTION IN A LANDSCAPE (TRIPTYCH TWO). However symbols and detailing need to be added.
I felt very unwell today. I had planned to go out but was unable to do so and initially worked on the computers, catching up with a bit of writing and then moved into my studio to paint (very slowly!). I completed the first (and main) painting stage of TRIPTYCH.
Still poorly but I managed to work in my studio much of the day. I did the main painting stage of another of the small landscapes (FIGURES IN A LANDSCAPE) and started a further two (MY THOUGHTS IN A LANDSCAPE and MEMORIES IN A LANDSCAPE).
I was out all morning and on my return went out for the afternoon with my wife (visiting a garden centre, which is a very agreeable activity but I should really have been working – or as it turned out resting!). Merely my usual blogging in the evening which proved a bit onerous as I was by then feeling ill again!
I was out most of the day and did very little of a creative nature save for a tiny bit of writing – which was attempted, none too successfully, when everyone else in the building insisted on talking as loudly as possible.
I entered my study about the middle of the morning and then stayed there for a large part of the day: writing and working on the computers. Outside the wind blew a gale.
