Art Diary: Week Ending 15th February

09/02/2014

I finally managed to spend a significant part of the day in the garden; coming in, possibly prematurely, during the middle of the afternoon (I reckon I am out of condition) to continue my writing.

I had to go out first thing in the morning and then painted the rest of the day. I repainted many of the lines on TWO VERSIONS OF THE ARTIST IN A TREE and then did likewise on THE CUTTING – TWO PEOPLE ON A TRAIN. I then painted on the computers.

I went out with my wife; had an unplanned meal and, equally unplanned, bought some very cheap canvases and canvas boards. On my return I painted in the images on both of the small acrylic canvases I started earlier in the year. Both pictures had the original working title of SMALL IMAGES AMONG LARGE ONES although this may change when I decide how to complete them: i.e. whether I actually add small images or not!

The weather was atrocious again – although my wife went out for a meal with a friend, spent approximately four hours in the restaurant and entirely missed the worst of it! I did the acrylic side of THE CUTTING – TWO PEOPLE ON A TRAIN using very thin paint.

I then added extra detailing to TWO VERSIONS OF THE ARTIST IN A TREE before working on the computers for the remainder of the day.

I was out in the morning and then painted for much of the afternoon. I painted in the margins of TWO VERSIONS OF THE ARTIST IN A TREE and THE CUTTING – TWO PEOPLE ON A TRAIN and then started to draw in the preliminary lines (using student quality oil paint – its runnier!) on the five canvases I purchased on Tuesday. The pictures have the working titles of: LANDSCAPE VIEWED FROM A TRIPLE DECKER BUS: AN EXPERIMENTAL PLOUGHED FIELD, SIDBURY HILL FROM THE BACK, LANDSCAPE VIEWED THROUGH A STRING VEST, HOW MY MIND ESCAPES (A GAP IN BUILDINGS) and THE DISUSED RAILWAY CUTTING.

The weather is supposed to be extremely bad again tonight so I had to do a bit of initial checking of the garden. I then divided my time between studio and study for the rest of the day. In the former I worked on the five new canvases, adding further lines, while in the latter I uploaded a large number of art works to my newly rearranged Picasa galleries – among others.

I went out for a meal with my wife in the morning. The afternoon was spent working on the computer but alas on mundane website and blog management tasks rather than writing, although I did a lot of digital art work in the evening.
