Preparing for Cambridge Open studios 2015

Cambridge Open Studios is coming up fast.

The last few weeks have been all about organising the space and reviewing pieces to plan a hang.

It's coming on.

Torn out pages

I am clearing out.  Shrinking things back.  I couldn't quite manage to throw the whole sketch it book away so I tore out the pages I wanted to keep.

A process of creating space to think and grow from.

In the fields

It looks like spring has got into me.  A field drawing -

I've been neglecting this space.  More studio time, more out and about and less screen time, but I'll be back more now. I like it here.

Becoming a painting

There is a quality in drawing that is a kind of lightness of touch, a gentleness and a potential. It is just so easy to destroy that delicate state by over doing things.  I added some paint to this piece and for once I am happy with the result.

I have gained a studio mate.  The last week has been all about sorting and organising. I have found some time for drawing too.

After a pause

I found myself feeling stuck. I considered throwing it all out of the window, but I waited instead. Then something began to happen. Shape and line have always been important, but now I need colour to play a part.  So this is a beginning.
