Am writing this earlier today as I am going out later. It might well be a little adventure.
As planned I started early to work on the portrait with the sunglasses and am pleased with the result. I managed to stop before I had overdone it. I think the recipient will like it. It’s fun. I really enjoyed painting the sunglasses.
Was finished by about 10.30am .
Searched around for something else to do and I wondered if I could make some light appear on my big landscape which I did during lockdown. The point of it was the light coming back into what had been a dark time. So I pottered about with that for a while but I don’t really know what I am doing and even youtube didn’t help.
After lunch I painted the sides of 3 paintings so that they dont need frames. It makes a difference. They look more finished. ( But it is quite a boring job.)
After that it was only about 3.30pm and I had read my book and chilled out and was bored again
Contacted a client about some paintings waiting to be collected.
I could have gone shopping tomorrow when scarily… I have no plans but it was relatively cool and the exercise would be good for me. So did my usual amount of shopping and trudged back uphill with a heavy rucksack.
Oh, I forgot .I also read over everything I have written this year. I have in mind to make myself an illustrated diary of this year. It was more interesting than I had thought it would be. That was cheering. I have a vague idea for short story , but am not sure how to begin yet.
It sounds a busier day than it was.
It’s not wine time now , but instead it’ll be deciding what to wear time. What usually happens is I try lots of clothes on and then having chosen something, change my mind again and wear what I always wear.
You’ve certainly got some light into your big landscape and the clouds on your church/town painting are stunning.
