A very busy day on site. I managed one drawing of some interaction outside the Finds Hut.

Nearly 300 people visited the Art Hut. So, as I needed to be around, it seemed a good opportunity to play with pigments.

I am recreating a piece made back in Bath for my exhibition last autumn at 44AD. The row underneath the bags are made with dry pigment straight on to canvas. The middle row are mixed with water. The bottom row are ground with beef fat – Neolithic ‘oil paint’ in recognition of the quantity of cattle bones found on site. The bags contain the stone used and the remains of the ‘oil paint’.

Tomorrow it’ll be back to normal, drawing on site.
