Art Diary: Week Ending 4th October

28/09/2014

My wife and I were on holiday last week so I didn’t bother with any diary entries. I walked between 70 and 80 miles, took about 2,000 photographs (just under 1,300 on two Blackberries and just over 700 on a DSLR and Bridge camera: mainly the latter). I also did approximately 120 very quick tablet scribbles: usually in the evening when my wife was watching something inane on the television.

Today, I was unsurprisingly tired and did very little other than import photographs and then amend, manipulate or simple title a handful. I also started to blog again after more than a week.

I had a bit of catching up to do in the garden and around the house and then spent much of the remaining day writing. Ditto tomorrow probably!

A couple of trips to the vets with writing sandwiched in between and after, although I didn’t get as much done as planned – although I did also did some sneaky digital art work.

I worked on the computer from early afternoon onwards; writing, drawing and editing photographs. the morning was spent in the garden catching up with put off jobs.

I am seriously considering selling my cactus and succulent collection after collecting and growing the plants off and on (mainly on) since my childhood. I have so little time now that I have a number of separate artistic careers and I am not growing the plants to a high enough standard. I lost plants recently that I wouldn’t have though possible to lose in the past. I also need a change and additional flexibility in my life so I may grow other plants but perhaps not so many!

I was out in the morning, although not for as long as planned. I worked on the computer once home – after fiddling around trying to make my spare mobile work for what seemed like hours.

I went to to town and back in an almighty rush and then spent most of the day painting on the computers. I plan to scan a further 34 sketch books by the end of the year and I hope to start that next week so I thought I would enjoy myself today.

It rained all morning so I ended up spending the majority of the day painting and drawing on the computers – with a bit of photograph editing thrown in for good measure.
