journey inward

These are the 4 stages of my most recent largish canvas
It is on coarse unstretched (and creased badly from being in my suitcase) jute canvas about 4′ x 3′

This was actually the second session, I forgot to take a photo of when it was all red and yellow, with a bit of turquoise,  stapled to the floor on Saturday morning

Sunday, more sombre with shapes consolidating

Early Monday morning – loads of alizarin crimson overlaid on the lower half and a mess in the middle and a scatty unresolved indecisive upper third

Maybe we’re getting somewhere

2 weeks to go

I will need the whole of the last week for the works to dry, wrap and arrange couriers or post
So starting my last few pieces now. The attic studio is looking very blue!

The 2 canvases coming along now
Began to get a feel for where I’m going with these about 6 o’clock this morning. Painted furiously for a couple of hours still in my pyjamas!
Worked mostly on these 2 and put the first 2 layers on 3 x 50cm panels
Also working on a rough piece of unstretched canvas taped to a table
