Yesterday, a second quick painting of an archaeologist in the trench. At last I am beginning to paint with the same direct approach that I have for drawing. A shame the dig ends next week, just as I’m getting into my stride. Something to continue when back home in my studio.
Another innovation was being introduced to the amazing comfort of sitting in a tipped up wheelbarrow while painting. The handles rest on the ground and you sit on the side between the handles with your back resting on the base of the wheelbarrow.
Despite our very diverse art practices, the combined efforts of the Art Hut have produced an installation in the display case on site, in time for the open day on Sunday. A successful collaboration is always a satisfying experience.
