Lockdown 29

…..noooooooooooooooo…..

….I stocked up on a bunch of test pot colours pre-lockdown (ha!…and you were all buying toilet paper!) for a project that proved too noisy and too stinky (burning +oneware is best done sans house mate, the smell of blazing 70s wood finishes does linger a “bit”) and have run out of “melting moments” one coat shy of the next part of the less noisy, less stinky project I switched to…

…was reduced to adding small quantities of water, leaving to soak and shaking the container violently so as to extract a wan near-water-colour consistency fluid to wash over the piece in the vain hope that I could achieve the cover I needed….

…7 coats later….

IT’S ALL GONE….

AND I’M NOT CONVINCED IT LOOKS “MELTING MOMENTS” ENOUGH….

…and while I can (I think) order more on line, I’d feel like I was abandoning my local paint shop to a post-lockdown wasteland with only test-pots to eat….

…first world lockdown problems….

Lockdown 22

…checked the mailbox today….first time in ages…(who even checks their letterbox any more?)…

…and bugger-me-days if that nice Jah-cinders hasn’t sent me a lockdown activity pack….

…I had to provide my own scissors….but she seems to have spared no expense on this wonderful time burning package…..

…let’s see what fun things we can do with it, shall we?….

…there…that’s 10 minutes that I don’t have to worry about finding ways to alleviate the seemingly endless tedium of having to stay home ALL the time…

…(hmmm…something tells me I may have peaked creatively before the lockdown ends)….

…(…did I buy enough toilet paper?…)….

So Many Ideas

…so little time….Scan 63

 

…if I didn’t come into work and stayed home to draw, sketches like this could become finished pieces at the time they were conceived instead of languishing in the sketch book till their relevance is lost in the mists of time…

…mind you, if I wasn’t so obsessed with doing the ideas in chronological order from the book…

…hmm, might be onto something there.
