When as often the painting stalls, it is the act of drawing that can resolve things. Looking at the subject can be confusing and I need to reconstruct what I see through drawing: the process being, looking; drawing; painting; looking, drawing. It is the drawing which enables me to do things that the painting needs but which I am too invested in or too cautious to implement even though I know that lost is lost and to move on can be a good thing.
By the way, Towards another picture is an anthology of artist's writings edited by Andrew Brighton and Lynda Morris. My old and tattered copy is published by Midland Group Nottingham. 24/32 Carlton Street, Nottingham. It is still available at Amazon.co.uk.
