I did sit outside for breakfast…..It has become important to take 5 minutes to sit and take note of my surroundings , without my phone. Sometimes I feel good, like I have stopped time , but mostly my mind rushes all over the place like a demented hen and I realise that I have eaten my breakfast and I didn’t notice .But I still do it. It is a way of trying to hold on to the peace and slowness of lockdown .
After that it was all go as I started to work out ideas for my big project. It is related to the painter of pisticci who is relatively famous for painting orange figures on a black background on pots in about the 4th or 5th century. .
I had an idea to paint 2 scenes on each of 2 square panels and so I spent about 5 hours looking for info and then doing sketches on my kindle.
When I had finished that I sent them to the guy I am working for and after a bit of discussion I am using 2 of them. I will need to make them square instead of rectangular but that shouldn’t be a problem. I plan to begin work on the panels tomorrow.
It was nice to do something different.
I also found some mild fake tan and applied it to my arms. It’s really just moisturiser with a touch of tanning so is safer than the real thing.
And now it’s wine time….again.
I loved using my kindle to do rough sketches today. It was so easy and less bother than drawing and then using crayons, and the colours are so vivid.
