In January 2021 lockdown was creating havoc with my schedule and I would find that I wouldn’t leave the house for 3-4 days and be constantly glued to my computer screen. I decided I needed another project which would give me some structure and this coincided with the start of the 100 day project which was running on Instagram.

Lockdown for me meant very little painting... in fact almost no painting at all for 3 months. So when I eventually got round to thinking about doing something this painting literally fell out of my head!

Lock down has given me the time to do a lot of jobs that have been hanging around the house. It has also given me the opportunity to play! Here I have taken a very large piece of Arches Huille to create 16 warm-up paintings in one go.

Because of where we are at the moment a lot of things have been cancelled or put on hold for me including a painting trip to Ireland. That didn't stop me still taking the week off work and use that time to get used to being at home but more importantly to dust off the old cellar studio space and paint.

Unusually this painting was deliberately created with the intention of turning it into Christmas cards hence the rather predictable green and red start to this piece. In the spirit of getting myself organised for Christmas I started this in October but life had a different idea. So over the Christmas break I started playing around with this piece and seeing whether it would go.

Having gone through a period of painting square paintings I have moved back to the landscape format.
I happened to fold a piece of Arches paper by the long length and have found this letterbox shape much more pleasing for the ideas I am currently working on.
