I have had to change my strategy - which is not really the point!
Every Artist that shows their work for the Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios 2013, is invited to show one piece in the fabulous venue of the Forum in Norwich for a week at the end of April. This piece should be typical of the Artists work & is of restricted size.
Here lies my problem. I can do less typical & small, or more typical & large!
To make a picture smaller (than usual), means that you have to restrict your movements & gestures & often you need to use different equipment. This doesn't always help of course, as I have found that odd limbs seem to migrate of their own will to the edges & further!
My new strategy is to concentrate on one interesting area & to allow the rest to be lost if necessary. I must confess to loosing most of a torso recently , using my new ways!
So, finally I have chosen a piece, which means that this Sunday I can indulge myself with my big brushes!
