I miss my studio, but I do also think it is very useful to only have a limited range of art-supplies around. I have to improvise a lot, but actually improvisation is at the heart of all art-making. If everything is sorted out before one starts, the work is dead. A work comes to life, I believe, by demonstrating its own will, forcing the artist to make unexpected moves.
Last week I started a new online course with Gabriella Buckingham, it will last for weeks … fortunately!
This week I focused on working with complementary colours.
And with simple sketches, drawing in charcoal with my non dominant hand.
Most of the work this week is done in different kinds of sketchbooks. I will bring them with me back to the studio, when I go back to Norway, where they hopefully with inspire new paintings.
