I’ve been working for a for a few weeks now on a commission project. Progress is inevitably just steady as I try to fit studio days in amongst other commitments. Its and interesting project as the three paintings that I will ultimately be making are all pretty much existing work, only they are much smaller. Some colours are changing in the larger works, and the birds will inevitably turn out differently but the basic wall structure across the three canvases that together will be about four metres wide will remain true to the smaller versions.
So far with the first two canvases under way progress is fine. The physicality of the curving wall in the empty landscapes is particularly satisfying to see develop as that seems to be working in quite a different manner to the smaller versions.
