[WEDNESDAY 11 JANUARY 2012]
I have returned after 2 months away from the studio.
I was sat at the easel by 10am, I did some blue neon painting and was back in for a break by 10.30am. Yes, a mere 30 minutes of painting before a break. But 30 minutes of good painting...
On my return I continued with the blue neon morse-code, it was like I hadn't been away, until the RSI kicked in in my wrist. Alas, I am not match-fit at the moment, but happy with my work, I put the canvas aside.
'Home Sweet Home' is now propped up on the easel, and I have been searching in vain for some photographic inspiration to get the areas where green and orange neon meet looking right. Still searching.
I eat soup and a sandwich for my lunch (like Andy Warhol) and now it's back to the studio...
Considering I'm a bit out of practice, the afternoon session was highly productive. Little success with the green/orange neon glow diffusion, but good progress with the rest of the orange neon lettering.
I finish at 19.08 with my brushes cleaned and a general feeling of contentment at a good day's graft.
