Missed a week as we went to Edinburgh for a short break. Then delayed coming back to the studio as I had to be here on a Tuesday to have the door fixed. After much toing and froing the time was set as 8:00 am. They wanted to come at 5:00 pm or later but without lights that was out of the question. I took this video to show how dark it was first thing in the morning.
I’m at the stage where I need to begin the interactive part of the project and I’m sorting the computer for that in my home studio. It’s also nearly Christmas so I’ll be here less frequently until the new year when I can bring the tech down.
I spent some time sorting the mess I’d left before I went away and then worked on sketches and the small sculptures.
Garden Sculpture One
All of these are based on the sketches I made in the garden in the summer and have been developing in the sketchbooks here.
Garden Sculpture Two
Garden Sculpture Three
The last of these is only just started and the second may well have a pierced screen suspended in the large gap.
The sketches are below, and the worktable which is becoming the place I spend most of my time.
Today’s Large Sketch
Today’s Small Sketch
Normally I’ve posted a whole week but as it’s nearly Christmas I’m posting when I can.
First post since August, what more do you need to tell you I work in education?
So I’ve reached the end of the year with a mental block only marginally released by walking the dogs. The images are based on piles of gardening materials left on a council plot behind the local Academy.I started to produce the images before I took the photograph. There are more of them on the galleries page of this blog.
I have begun to work the idea up with series of larger drawings, but early days yet.
