New painting with the studio cat Ruby

Getting back into the studio

After returning home from my wonderful time in Mildura and the exhibition at The Art Vault, and after completing all the admin I had to do for the BAS and other obligations (if you know what that’s about I’m sure you’ll sympathise!) for my partners business I felt I was then ‘free’ to paint in the studio. Delightful and delicious. Though the painting took quite a ‘conversation’ and ended up with so many layers! I think the process is evident in the resultant work. And benefits from it. After many days ‘conversation’ I had with the painting I realised in fact it was completed. It was a long conversation. I also decided that the white edges of the painting distract when the painting is viewed. The eyes are drawn to the stark white edge, so I painted the edges a colour used in the painting. Think this allows better concentration on the painting itself. Works for me. But there’ll always be someone who will think otherwise. And that’s OK!

Back in the studio and the first painting after returning from Mildura.

Back in the studio and here is the first painting after returning from Mildura. It has more layers and took a longer process than I expected.

Decided the white of the edge on a painting can distract, so today I painted the latest painting edges one of the many colours found in the painting.

Detail of the first painting after returning from Mildura. And as you can see it has many layers and took a longer process than I expected.
