My intention this week was to start marking out the 2nd wall painting. This 2nd image involves drawing straight lines over 6 metres long – to make up a series of very long, thin triangular forms. In order to do this we were going to scan a scaled drawing into a computer and then enlarge to full size as a series of sheets that can be blue tacked to the wall in proper order. The next step being to pounce through onto the wall a series of marks then joining up the marks with a straight edge.
However, due to unforeseen circumstances the cartoon was not available. Hopefully they will be next week as I am keen to start work on the second image.
I made good progress with the first wall painting – filling in blocks of cadmium yellow. Needless to say more than one coat of paint is required. The process is time consuming but I am pleased with the results so far.
