false starts, happy endings

It's Sunday and I'm in the studio, I'd love a Drifty roast but low on pennies and really needed to crack some work out for Scattered Art next week. So, after a false start and some rubbish bits of painting I finally concentrated on the images I really felt connected to, reference pics that is, and worked from there. Ones I didn't know would work, or why they would, but started from there and the first one had no legs but I liked the way I painted it, and saw that he looked like a conductor. I liked it, framed it and voila! it's all come together! Everything I was trying to achieve with my unit 3 at college had come to it's conclusion! a hint of some interaction rather than a description which is where mine for bordering on before. So a prop is used. I have painted three and I like them but I can make them better for the next ones, less contrived and considered as these still are a bit but they are definitely closer to what is in my mind now which is great. Very exciting. Anyway here they are, cheers for dropping in...x
