Art Diary: Week Ending 12th April



Another dismal day which I spent largely indoors with most of my time taken up with painting and editing on the computers – plus rather hurried writing.



Not a particularly memorable day although I was in my studio for a large part of it. I started to paint in all the shapes on the series of twelve FRAGMENTS FROM LIFE paintings. Doing one colour (or variations on it) on all of the pictures in turn.



Today was almost a copy of yesterday with me painting in another colour (or colour set) across the twelve FRAGMENTS FROM LIFE paintings.

The evening was a copy of almost every evening with most of it spent blogging and uploading art works – plus fairly spontaneous computer painting.



Yet another day in my studio working on all twelve of the FRAGMENTS FROM LIFE pictures. Some are now near completion.



I was out visiting in the morning and then spent the afternoon with the great grandchildren. Nothing creative done save for some opportunistic photography during the afternoon and I was too tired to do much at all in the evening!



My wife was out all day with the great grandchildren (I had planned to go but there was no room in the car) so I spent all my time in my studio and then study. I completed the main painting stage of eight of the small FRAGMENTS FROM LIFE pictures before working on the computers from the late afternoon onwards.











A fairly typical Saturday with pottering around in the morning followed by a meal with my wife and then writing and painting on the computers in the afternoon – it should have been mainly the former but sadly was predominantly the latter!
