I really enjoyed these two weeks, benefitting from having a return session. In the first week I managed to get a lot of work done on the 2 large abstracts but was unhappy with the second. I realised after discussion with John that I had missed out a stage in the development of these paintings in that I had no framework/composition on which to base them. The first worked through happy chance. I had to work harder on the second. John then advised me to take simple drawings of components of the studio and focus on monochrome. The simplicity of these after the complex abstracts was a welcome respite.
