Got a few new art supplies. Couldn’t get the Hahnemuhle Harmony in a block this time - it’s a pad that you tear out (and is loose on all sides but one). Guess it will be the same but I do like painting on a block.
Started a few things - not really in the mood to finish or start anything - perhaps it’s the heat coming back. Last week it was over 100 degrees (heat index) several days and going back up this week (not that high but close). It doesn’t matter if I stay inside in air conditioning, I still feel the effects of the heat - I get lethargic and I’ve felt on the edge of passing out for several days - blood pressure is okay and don’t feel ill in any other way but have to be careful moving around (even driving). Who knows what’s causing it?
This little mockingbird fledgling was begun on a block of Hahnemuhle 140# cold press (Harmony style). But have just left it for days.
And picked up another block of something (Arches?) and playing with putting down color on a piece of paper I had spritzed with water to get drops on the paper all over. Not sure where this will go.
Does the weather affect your work - or do you go into the studio every day no matter what? Or do you paint outside?
