Art Diary: Week Ending 5th April

 30/03/2014

I had to go out in the late afternoon so I decided to spend all the preceding part of the day in the garden – in my greenhouses to be exact. No creative work at all save for making up stories for children in the evening.

I had to catch up with my writing so from late morning onwards I spent most of my time on the computers. Nothing much else was done.

I was in my studio, off and on, a large part of the day. I added all the symbols to the structures on SIDBURY HILL FROM THE BACK – some of these will have to filled in with colour and I want to add background patterning and possibly other detailing. That will have to wait to Thursday as I am out all day tomorrow.

I had to go to London again to collect more paintings so nothing much done other than a handful of photographs.

My trip coincided with a warning of high levels of air pollution but I think it was probably worse in Andover, although possibly more visible in London.

I was out in the morning and then spent some time sorting out paintings. Ideally I would like a larger and separate studio so I can explore new ideas using a range of out of the ordinary materials (actually not so new as I would be returning to my artistic approach of the late Seventies – not surprisingly most of these early works are no longer extant).

After this I completed SIDBURY HILL FROM BEHIND (ORIGINALLY CALLED SIDBURY HILL FROM THE BACK) by adding the final detailing and painting in the simple symbol sequences.

After a late start I very slightly repainted a number of works which had got damaged in store. This only took an hour and as I didn’t want to start any new works this late in the week I moved from my studio to my study just after two to paint and write on the computers.

I may garden tomorrow as Sunday looks like it will be wet.

A bit of a dreary day and I spent a lot of it in front of the computer (with a sandwich filling of weekend odd jobs): mainly painting and editing photographs.
