Although I think I might be going completely barmy as a result of drawing so many leaves and morning glory flowers the results are paying off as the full impact of the vines in the composition is beginning to emerge. I don’t have a great deal to say about the technical aspects of the work beyond what I’ve said in the last few posts, and I’m really looking forward to getting these leaves finished this work and moving on with the painting, which should start moving pretty fast after this slow period.
Remaining so focused on one subject for a long time is slightly painful. I try to keep my attention on the outcome of all the work, the bigger picture, if you like. Loud music helps, and the regular visits of my friends and colleagues Rich Brimer, Mike Adams and Tony Pro always bring welcome conversation and laughter to the studio.
