getting back into the swing of it
its been a month now since the end of the shows and I have to say I was bushed at the end of it all. So much so I just could not paint! I had several pieces on the go but they were quite honestly going nowhere.
Not wanting to beat myself up, I started playing around with bits of wood and 3D; my intention was to use plaster and paint and anything else that took my fancy. However my plaster has gone off so until I find a supplier for small quantity of plaster it will just be wood, glue and paint.
I intend to paint it when finished; not sure yet if it will be a 3D homage to Mondrian or an abstract painting / 3D at the moment I favour the latter, but time will tell
this piece is nearly ready to paint although it has another component to be added; not sure about colour/s yet
back to the paintings
it has worked out well as after a few days playing with wood I found myself going back to the paintings – I had taken the pressure off. I am enjoying doing both and have found I am enthused with doing the 3D stuff and have loads of ideas just waiting to be realised.
think I have turned the corner with these two pieces; although they still have a way to go
Let me know what you think of the 3D so far? has it got legs?
I have work showing throughout November at the Exeter Contemporary Arts Hub
