This week I've been working on preparatory drawings for my next painting 'Dreamtime' - ( you can see a very short film of my first sketch on Instagram.)
I set up the Pollacks Toy Theatre at various angles and used a lamp to add dramatic lighting.
I even ended up sitting on the floor so I could see the theatre from a very steep angle.
Four of the drawings were photocopied at different sizes and I've been cutting them up to arrange the composition.
The image is based on a dream I had in the midst of the pandemic, of being trapped inside the theatre and couldn't get out.
The final painting will show Hazel and I escaping from Covid.
