Something new

Miserable weather finally set in yesterday and will go on for a few more days. We are getting a good soak though, which will help water in the trees and such for winter. Just it is also cold and windy. So time to take advantage of inside time.

This is something I have wanted to do for a while. I am not going to say exactly what it is at this point. Needless to say, it is going to be quite abstract looking, even though it is actually something real. I got the sketch done up and then have started to block in the colours. This is the fun bit, just smooshing colour onto the canvas without too much detail. This won’t have a lot of detail anyway, just some refinements of the colours and highlights.

This is probably as far as I will get today. We are going out to a lecture tonight – I’d rather stay in when it is like this. It is a Sir Ken Robinson, who gave one of the TED lectures about education, called Schools Kill Creativity. I wonder if I can skip? I am sure it will be interesting, probably an elaboration of what was on the TED program. GK’s former student, now a new faculty member here is going to so maybe they can go together. Hmmm. I’ll probably go anyway as I am sure it is going to be good. Just whingeing about the weather.

BTW the TED site is a very interesting one with 15 minute lectures by people from everywhere. It is Technology Entertainment Design. It is definitely worth checking out.

Well, had better organize supper early as we will have to get there early for a seat – free lecture so should be widely attended.
