Art Diary: Week Ending 16th November

10/11/2013

I was out in the garden all morning and part of the afternoon – which was actually longer than planned. When I came in I didn’t feel much like writing so did mainly other tasks on the computers. To be honest there was not a huge amount of creative work done, except the usual evening blogging and the usual early morning photography (with a smart phone) while walking the dog.

I never got into my studio at all today. I was out first thing and then went on the computers to catch up on my writing. It was much harder work than usual – I am not totally sure why – and took most of the afternoon. I wanted to do some art work on the computer but this will now have to wait.

I got into my studio relatively early and completed another new drawing; now entitled EXPLORATION: DEVELOPMENT FROM A HIDDEN THEME. I finished this a little before three and decided to move onto the computers rather than start work on another drawing.

I have now titled all the works as follows: EXPLORATION: ALLEGORY INVOLVING A BOA CONSTRICTOR COILED AROUND A GRAVE STONE, EXPLORATION: THE ADVENTURES OF TWO TRIANGLES AND A TREE, EXPLORATION: A HEAD TRAPPED BETWEEN FOUR DIFFERENT REALITIES and EXPLORATION: A MIND HELD CAPTIVE.

A little bit late getting into my studio but I settled down well to adding images to EXPLORATION: ALLEGORY INVOLVING A BOA CONSTRICTOR COILED AROUND A GRAVE STONE.

I stopped a bit early too and moved onto the computers to work on some fairly rudimentary digital pictures.

I was out in the early part of the morning, getting home about ten and finally settling into my studio about eleven thirty. I then worked on EXPLORATION: ALLEGORY INVOLVING A BOA CONSTRICTOR COILED AROUND A GRAVE STONE until about four – with the usual interruptions!

After this I did a bit of art work on the computers before doing my blogging and similar tasks.

Despite having to go to town with my wife I finished EXPLORATION: ALLEGORY INVOLVING A BOA CONSTRICTOR COILED AROUND A GRAVE STONE before two and decided to work on the computers for the rest of the day: a combination of writing and drawing/painting. I have actually stopped work in my studio early most days of this week, which is probably indicative of the complexity of the pictures I am currently working on – unless it just illustrates my laziness; although I actually go and do something else!

I was out with my father and wife most of the day. I spent a few minutes in my studio before I went out and very much longer in my study when I came back.
