I did manage to finish my Panorama landscape and it is up on my wall awaiting final touches and varnishing:
I hinted that I may be starting another big project and I have been quietly gathering my thoughts and resources, sketching out ideas and making Plans for this project. It is to tie in with my Art Journal and the subject title is "In 50 Years". I plan to do some landscapes on the subject of changes over the past 50 years and possible changes over the next 50 years (exploring threats to the environment, in particular). The body of work is to include sketches, photos and paintings (maybe even some film/sound pieces) and I am very excited to get started on this proper. I have some promised paintings and commissions to clear out of the way, but will begin to post my ideas on this blog soon.
In the meantime, autumn is beginning to happen here in Scotland and I know I shall have to get out in the countryside for some plein air painting as the colours will be irresistable.
On this subject, I painted this scene from my back window in spring and feel I would enjoy painting an autumn scene now that the colours are changing. This is a week ago and already the changes are beginning to show.
The rest of today, I shall be painting, but this evening I shall visit your blogs to catch up on your posts!
