October has fallen, and so have the leaves. Landing questionably over this pavement doodle.
First day back, strange to say back when the majority of people on the MA are new. Which means meeting new people, and learning about the rest of the people who are on this new adventure. It’s strange being back, Kind of like starting all over again. Only a few familiar faces around town, and somehow now at 21 I’m one of the oldies.
Tuesdays are my timetabled day.
10:00 A small meeting with the fellow painting students, assigning studio spaces, discussing our artwork, learning about how the course will work.
12:00 talking about the out of hours access to the building,, General health and safety discussion.
14:00 The first art history seminar, the new topic brings many new difficulties, in which I hope to prosper.
16:00 The Vocaional course, a nice balance of art talk/ psychology and general chit chat. A different kind of seminar, in which gave us all a little bit of rest bite.
18:00 quick look st my studio space ready to move in tomorrow.
9:00 Moving in to the studio, which over looks the sea. perfect. Only issue is carrying heavy boards up a few flights of stairs, and through narrow corridors. In addition to the trundle from my house to the old college. Each time I returned home wishing I had a car.
Inspiration all around, and so pleased I can see the sea.
Still uncertain whether I will continue to paint the besuty, I am kind of looking forward to including more elements of where the sea meets the land in my future paintings, still looking at the light and movement in both the sea and sky, but in contrast to the land, but I also hope to paint the land in such away where you can see the relationship to the non solid elements of the landscapes, by applying the paint thinly and retaining its lustre.
Newest addition in the painting studio, currently working on some train sketch ideas from the views over the Dyfi. Getting back into the gist of it. To start back I have been confused about what to paint, now it’s the masters everything has to step up. I don’t just want to paint the same paintings as last year, they had their place, but I need to look at my work in a new perspective.
