I think I must’ve been worried about what to paint today and so I had a very vivid dream about painting a portrait of Nicola Sturgeon . Then I had to wake myself up and read for a while to get my mind clear. ( I am very disappointed with Scottish politics right now and discouraged at how easy it was for me to think the worst. I can’t help remembering an ex Russian KGB agent talking about how easy it was to destabilise a country by filling the news etc with so many lies that eventually people believe nothing any longer. )
Anyways once I had Nicola Sturgeon out of my head it took a while and quite a bit of reading before I came up with an idea.
I’ve never painted a straight on view of my house before as it’s not possible to get far enough back to see it all.
I thought I might quite like that for myself.
Am not sure yet if it was a good idea.
I started with a drawing on my paintart app.
And that’s how I’ve spent today. It seemed important to use Sunday to paint something for myself….otherwise how will I ever learn what I want to paint.
Now it’s raining . I’m warm inside. It’s wine time and ” vlog night”.
