Paintbook 63-64

….the packaging said “64 sheets”…

…bastards were counting the end pages!…

…completely screwed my numbering system…

…couldn’t bring myself to use the covers…

…so smacked them with a collage of all the post it notes to self that go with the finished pieces I’ve worked on….

…there…

…will count the pages in Paintbook II before I start the numbering….

…oh….

…and here is a video run thru of the whole thing….

Paintbook 61

…and associates….

…you gotta have a plan…

…you gotta expand on the plan…

…then you gotta execute the plan…

…(that could take a while)…

…(it involves flies)…

…(lots of them)…

…(was trying to post this yesterday but my internet connection decided otherwise)…

…(probably should have a plan involving internet connections as well)….

Paintbook 59/60

…kinda in that uneasy space between finishing something large and trying to start the next one…

…have a screed of notes and colour guides developing around my drawing table in preparation…

…was going to post some more sketchbook only to discover that I’d re-scanned the last page posted thinking it was the one I wanted to put up now…

…had to finish the above (abandoned since January) to get back into paintbook without guilt….

…now I want to do a “good” version to hang!….

…(ah…there’s that next rabbit hole…)….



Regular

Peggy’s Square

….even tho the entries in paintbook were only meant to be background colour guides for a larger, more complicated thing, these met with ooos and aahs in “some quarters” so I thought it wise to do them “properly” as a finished piece….

….wasn’t till after I’d finished that I realised they look like ol’ peggy square throw rugs crochet by “your nan”…..

…(possibly explains their “popularity”)….

…(297 x 420 on reclaimed ply)….

Paintbook 58

…aaannnnddd…

…that’s me all caught up with paintbook…

…there is another piece all laid out in there, but I’ll be working on big things for the foreseeable future so I’m not sure when I’ll get to it…

…likewise sketchbook is involved with something a little larger and for someone else’s publication so that source of posting might dry up for awhile…

…stay tuned though ‘cos I’m easily side tracked and may be back here sooner than I’m anticipating!….

Paintbook 57

…so I thought to myself…

…what if, instead of the colours radiating out from a point, I just jumbled them up….

…random like….

….hmmm…

…random like….
