I finished the empty studio drawing last week so I moved from the studio into the big room so I can paint the garden. The view from the studio was the bins and the car. Well usually I'm overwhelmed. The thing I like about the garden is the cacophony of colour and shapes and light. Landscape painters can simplify this, but I like it all. So, I tend to avoid it as I just don't see all blocks. But I have noticed Klimt and Lucian Freud and other portrait painters just do the detail... So, bugger it, that's what I'm doing. It's taking lots of time... But at the moment, time is what I have lots of.
