Paintbook 31

…so the rule was….

…outline in the red, filler in orange, “suckers” in lighter orange, outline in yellow….

…then, green, blue, indigo, and purple…

…all seven colours in order…

….(I’d imagine I’ll be aiming for seven of these all starting with the next colour outlines and proceeding thru the spectrum as I usually do)….

Saturday Night Lockdown Flyby

…this is piece is taking forever…

…big burning (pyrography) session over the next couple of days….

…then a bit of line work and it’s done!….

…can’t wait to get on to a scree of unfinished smaller odds and sods that are piling up around the place…

….maybe chuck some more paint on those octopuses….

…yeeeess….

….paint the octopuses….

Big Secret Project V

…I was going to post (again) about the grand first bite of that huge record accumulation at Restore, 7 Gordon St., Dunedin Central at 10.am today….

…but was so excited about “selling” records again that I neglected to take pic’s of my very overladen car or the carefully shrouded, 20 crate lump all ready to table at the store…

…so here’s a picture I painted to look at whilst you wait for the doors to open…

…it’s one of a series of ten I did during lockdown last year…

…(cue elevator music)….

……see you at 10.a.m.

New Job Starts Today

…it’s a dayshift thing

…so I have spent the last 11 days adjusting to sleeping at night…

…and not really being at all painty or drawy….

…so here’s another lump of the big secret project revealed…

…and the new job?…

…not sure you’d believe me if I told you…

…but…

…I’m gonna be driving a big bucketed loader thing down at the local waste transfer station…

…yup…

…I finally get to work at the dump!….

…better get gone…don’t want to be late on my first day….

Fail By Numbers

….the original idea was to take the 50 year old oil paints left over after I replaced their paint by numbers palette with acrylics and revitalise them with linseed oil as suggested on the box, then smash them with the mallet whilst counting loudly, to create an abstract “piant by numbers” pattern….

….we (me & Spencer) didn’t factor in the robustness of the 70s plastic vials that the paint has been stored in all these years….

…we retired to the living room to listen to vintage Italian film music and talk shit in lieu of being “creative” for the afternoon….

…my dreams of being able to repurpose the evil fluids have been returned to the planning department for adjustment…
