Thank goodness…. I’ve finally found some images to use for new paintings which might inspire me.
Thank you youtube. Over the last few days I have watched maybe a dozen short videos on painting, composition, inspiration and anything that looked as if it might help.
And today after watching a video on cropping photos for drama and compositional reasons I finally went through my photos again and ruthlessly cut them down in various shapes. Some didn’t work ,but others suddenly looked promising. Now I have 23 possibles.
I am going to try and make them all mean something to me. Be a little braver , more confident and more adventurous.
I have looked out lots of off cuts of canvas on cardboard as well as my newly made stretched canvases so I have a lot of choice. They are mostly smallish. I can always paint bigger versions later if I want to.
Made a small walk to the supermarket again today and came back the long way. I had been going to go out now and deliver a painting ,but it’s being picked up ,and as it’s raining I am not complaining. So a tick for exercise, and yoga today.
Today I think it might have been possible to go to Matera or Potenza and be vaccinated. There was no booking. From the photos it looks like crowds of people went.
I think it will be wine and Miss Marple now and as I don’t really seem to be turning orange , then more carrot oven chips for later. The stove is on and it’s warm in here. Nice.
