Sitting down to paint on a Friday I feel like as breathless and excited as a kid getting on a roller-coaster. It's not always easy to sit down and get started. 'The book show' is on the radio at 10am (ABC Radio National), so I aim to listen to that while I paint. I tell myself I'll just do a couple of base coats or play around in my sketch book. By the time the show's finished I'm usually in my stride and keep painting for a couple of hours.
I wonder what tricks other people use to get down to work...?
This painting is called - a fairytale wolf in Paris. It's for an exhibition on the theme of lost gloves that opens next Friday.
Have a great weekend!
