5th April Friday 2013

Realising that the painting is only as good as the drawings Im using to inform it, have begun restructuring and NOT using the drawings - both are weak. Which somewhat totally undermines my current modus operandi. 
The new canvases arent dry enough to use yet.
So I just bash away at the E and P mark 2 and hope something interesting will emerge.
Because simply being faithful t0 bad drawing is stupid. Possibly being faithful to good drawing is not a lot of use.
Been thinking about retabli - is that the word? The peasant-painted tin pictures of votive thanks or importuning. Real art, magical, touching the gods, informative. Making for the maker from the made.
