Preparing for SALA

It's been a long time,  but I am preparing for SALA which begins very soon....  I have been hanging paintings and getting organised...
 ... there is plenty to do...
 .... and a few "old works" on the end wall...
...  more to do,  and I will be busy this week.

Trying a new process...

I have several drawings that I like very much,  but they were done on cheap paper with ordinary materials and so they won't last.   There is something about using materials that one doesn't feel "precious" about to make production of interesting drawings easy.  Yesterday,  I attempted to "copy the  drawing" with paint... cheap paint and a cheap support... just to maintain the thinking...

The drawing....
... it had been done very quickly  (5 minutes) with charcoal on newsprint...

The painting...
... done in a few minutes (not much longer than before)... just to see if I could do it.

Hermit tree drawing

This should have been ahead of the previous preliminary painting... the original drawing...
... in my notebook.
