I have managed to add some more detail to my latest drawing, a semi-abstract still life of objects from my ‘collection’. At first glance it may appear that I haven’t added much since my first update, but I can assure you that there’s quite a deal, albeit ‘delicate’ of information added.
The background will be made up of small stones and shapes from the featured objects. To be honest, I don’t want a traditional background. This composition will have a level playing field, part of the luxury of it being semi-abstract.
I have also enclosed a close-up view of a section to give you an idea of how much detail this drawing will have upon its completion. This type of work is intense and after several hours’ work, seemingly little progress can be seen. But hopefully, it will all be worth it in the end.
Before I left Tasmania, I damaged my left arm just below my shoulder. After 10 weeks of discomfort I finally had a cortisone injection yesterday morning (ouch!). My arm feels better already and after 5 days’ rest I will be able to enjoy the sea and our swimming pool a lot better than I have since our arrival, a day over 8 weeks ago.
Friday: Is the price right? Part 1. The first in a series of 3 posts discusses how we should price our artwork. This is an update of my previous articles on this topic and in part 3 I will present some examples of pricing. I welcome any comments on this topic, so please reply if you have something to add to the ‘mix’.
I am currently writing an article titled ‘Does size matter?‘ Here I challenge the notion that the bigger the painting, the bigger the price.
