My wife and I spent the morning with the youngest family members and then we both went out into our respective gardens – as it turned out I spent most of the afternoon in mine with little time for creative work when I finally came in. What I did do was on the computers – no surprise there of course!
A late start – completing the odd jobs I put off yesterday! – and then into my studio where I completed the main painting stage of the remaining four FRAGMENTS FROM LIFE pictures.
After this I went onto the computers to paint and write (plus the sundry other things that get in the way of painting and writing!).
I had to take the rabbit to the vet and then my wife and I went out for the day (the weather being exceptionally pleasant!) so no work done except for some photography – I was out early and the shadows were inspiring!
I was very late getting into my studio and on the spur moment decided to paint on the computers rather than paint at my easel. This may prove to be true for the entire week although I want to add the images and detailing to the FRAGMENTS FROM LIFE pictures next week – although I also want to do some work in the greenhouses!
I was out in the morning and only did a little easel painting on my return home. I did a bit of work to a highly improvisational piece THE BRIDGE DIVIDES. The panel it is painted on was once the backing board to a painting from the Nineties called by the same name. I am radically reinterpreting the theme.
After this I spent the rest of my creative day painting on the computers – I actually got a great deal done; using photographs I had taken earlier in the day as a starting point.
As it was the Good Friday holiday I didn’t spend any time in my studio although I did a couple hours of work on the computers before going out into the garden.
I spent much of the day out in the garden or with family so not a great deal of creative work except for an hour or two painting on the computer in the morning.
