In Perspective

 Do you remember the nightmare I wrote about in my 19th March blog when I was trapped in a Victorian puppet theatre and couldn't get out?

 I am hoping to use this experience as a basis for my next painting 'Dreamtime' (about Covid) and plan to use steep perspective to dramatize the event.

Recently, I have been looking at David Hockey's use of perspective in his designs for the opera and his way of creating illusionary space to dramatic effect. I saw an exhibition of his work once where he had been using a miniature theatre to test out his ideas. On display were photographs of him at work and the actual model he had been using.
