I hear the robin singing just after 5.30am this morning. It’s definitely getting light earlier!
In the studio, I decide to paint a portrait of Millie, for myself. I have a little time, as I am keeping on top of my gallery work. I thoroughly enjoy working loosely and boldly. Without using any preparatory drawing, I begin carving out her form with wide, flat, brush strokes; incorporating the runs, drips and spontaneous marks into the composition. By the end of the day I can see her recognisable shape standing on the easel. I look forward to adding some detail during the next couple of days.
