One evening while we were working on the mural, there was a talk/discussion on public art in the room above us. We went to it, and I made a few quick drawings of people while listening.
Doing quick portrait drawings always makes me feel calm and good. It's a way of turning down the brain, meditative and focussed.
Another evening, I was feeling physically low-energy so did not work much on the mural. Instead, I went home early and made a few small abstract sketches. The sketches brought back into focus my current studio work, quite different from the mural's aesthetic.
It was a energy nice re-set, and then I could continue with the mural in a good frame of mind. Yesterday we added more bits & pieces, and taped off part of the wall which will be painted a dark grey colour, so the painters would know what to do with that wall.
We are in the very final stages of the mural now. I look forward to its completion within a few days... if all goes according to plan. (x) Once it is complete, I will probably miss working on it! *laughs* So it goes.
