A complete volte face…back to my Playground of the Midlands series…and the lay off means having to put a very different ‘head’ on. Back to working off of specific visual sources (that is referencing images crudely constructed from photos take on site). Working to resolve them whilst readjusting to using oils and as Thomas Nozkowski used to say keeping them open “so that everything is back in play”.
It wasn’t though…so it has made 49 small pictures utilising the simplest of strategies.
Hard to figure why some things just seem to be ‘right’ when you spend a fraction of the time thinking through and executing something whilst others take forever and still end up ‘wrong’.
