Freshly Mined

I've had a tough day down the paint mine. Much of the work was just not happening. Ideas were not coalescing. I don't get much time to paint,(although it's getting better time wise) so when I get a day in my  cave of paint I don't want to waste it.

Rather than call it a day I painted through the non-painting stage. I came out the other side with a lot of duds and one or two gems. 

Gem one - a Work in Progress. I've titled it Piranesi's Frustrated Pier as it uses the composition of his 'Pier with Trophies' from his Prison etching series.

Gem two- is part of my Procedural Painting Series.

I'm off to Liverpool tomorrow and hopefully I'll be able to fix the duds on Thursday.
