On the way to the life class I’d been cleaning my ears out with John Cale’s mixes of The Stooges first album. I knew the marks made would be strong and righteous.
All the images this week were created on Paynes grey painted paper.
The act of painting out of near black was troublesome but worthwhile. Some of the marks just didn’t register, though when it did made more of an impression on the eye than on white paper.
The last painting of the night. 1 hour. The three elements, male, Mr Skelington and female relate across the surface. To get into the right position meant a rather uncomfortable time on the floor. The colours work, it would have been fun to see what I could have done with three hours. The yellow block is the light above them.
The two figures, seated. 20 minutes. The cloth was black in real life.
A real cool time.
