Art Diary: Week Ending 19th July

This is last week’s art diary, posted rather late I am afraid.  Because of pressure of work there are no photographs although these will be added separately a.s.a.p..




Most of this Sunday was spent outside; either on a reluctant shopping expedition (my wife and I are taking it in turns doing this as one of us has to be home to keep an eye on the dog) or gardening – with the cricket commentary on the radio probably annoying the neighbours!



I have returned to conventional painting again – although not in my studio as I had to work in the living room looking after the the dog when my wife went out. I stopped when she returned and went back to digital art. Hopefully I will actually be in my studio tomorrow.

I am adding simple symbol sequences to the small FRAGMENTS FROM LIFE paintings I started earlier in the year – in now seems like an age ago.



I still haven’t got into my studio but I have continued with easel painting: as yesterday adding symbols to the linear strands in the FRAGMENTS FROM LIFE paintings. I am working on several at the same time but actually finishing one a day – in most cases the symbols and shapes will need painting in.



Practically no creative work done at all today as I had to rush the dog to the vets on several occasions, necessitating four separate taxi rides (money!) as she had a too tight bandage on the leg she was operated on and then she had a too loose bandage and then some of her stitches came out…..!

A miniscule amount of digital art on the computer.



I was out in the morning and then painted and drew on my tablets in the afternoon (my wife went out and I had to keep an eye on the dog – with staples replacing stitches! – in the living room).



I actually worked in my studio today! Like earlier in the week I added symbols to the FRAGMENTS FROM LIFE PAINTINGS; I have finished this stage on six of the twelve works.



No oil painting today and I spent much of my time drawing/painting on one or other of my tablets while watching the dog – who slept most of the time!
