Yesterday I took a class with Neil Pittaway at The Mall Galleries as part of the NEAC scholarship. His main task was to make thumbnail sketches of various paintings and then to draw them together into something to use as our own art. In a funny way that's all drawing from life is. I see lots of little vignettes bumping up against each other here and the challenge is to make them into a whole.
When Craig Jefferson was talking about his paintings he talked about how he chooses a different background priming colour. His very vibrant picture began with yellow so I began with a lime yellow today.
It's a beautiful day and I look forward to a big run at five pm.
