Out in the sunshine…

This weekend I pulled out of my basement workshop/cats home the current solid pieces I am working on. In the heat and sunlight they looked very different which prompted me to spend some time painting and fixing while I got a tan.

Lighting is crucial for all things. I remember researching the lighting Rothko wanted on his paintings in his special Tate Britain gallery in Pimlico. It’s worth a look. In sunlight they would lose that soberness.

I sort of liked what the sunlight did to my pieces, The depth and complexity of shadow is wonderful but the sunlight also reveals more timber than texture than simple for. Not an effect I am after.

Anyway here they are in the garden. They are heavy and Sue complained about having to help lift them up the basement steps. I bet Sir Anthony Caro doesn’t have that problem…
