Today was the first day working on a mural by myself.
After an almost sleepless night I thought, “I can still do this.”
Unfortunately up and down ( only 3 steps) did for me.
I was okay to begin with and managed to get the most boring part , measuring and drawing squares, done.
But, by the time I started drawing at the top I was feeling a bit wobbly. Despite that the 2 biggest buildings are done. I’m using one sketch which is squared off…but the individual buildings are on different photos and need some adjustments. It’s a bit confusing.
Eventually even sitting on the top of the ladder wasn’t helping. It took about 45 minutes, several sweets and a drink of fizzy lemon juice ,before I could carry on drawing at the bottom.
Hopefully it was mostly down to lack of sleep. Tomorrow I shouldn’t need to be up and down so much.
I’ve done nothing else today. I had planned to work on the other commission , but have been far too tired.
The weather is fine. Not too hot.
Now, after studying photos of today’s work , I’m going to have a glass of wine and hopefully a relaxing evening ……..followed by a good nights sleep.
