Week Two in the new studio.
Monday 12th November, built a step and a 80mm platform to allow me to work up high, stretched forty metres of nylon cord across the space just off centre, to the right of the entrance. Tightened some of the hardboard with extra screws.
Wednesday14th November, started the drawing in the big space, outline first and then charcoal.
The charcoal sections treated differently for each one.
Also put the heating on in the little office to dry out the stretched paper. The electricity usage went from 283 KWh to 299 KWh and the board was still not fully stretched after that. That’s £3.20 worth of heat, it was like a sauna in there. It means I won’t be doing any drawing on stretched paper here.
Friday I worked with blackboard paint and white emulsion to build up the interior. I also made a light fitting for the space as it gets dark early.
The whole drawing, as near as I can replicate it, looks like this. In progress, there is a long way to go, collage elements next.
This last video has the emulsion sections added with the light on. There is still a long way to go before I begin to add the interactive elements.
