So after a big stint of no painting no drawing I’ve been finding myself to be uber bored and grumpy. This week my thumb hasn’t been playing up so much so I thought I’d try and get my hand back into shape.
I didn’t bring any of my paints over with me this trip, as it was supposed to be a flying visit – Ha – But I did have some ink and laquer stored up on one of the shelves in the spare room.
I’m pretty out of practice, and to be honest I don’t usually go for painting people; But I’m working through a stencil idea to go over some of my abstracts and this is the first step of the process for me. I want them to end up quite styalised, so I still need to push them further – I think it was a good way to ease back into things after a break though.
Had this song by Jess Chambers and the Firefly Orchestra in my head all afternoon… Beautiful. And perfect to paint to.
