Working away on Clifton Road, in good old Port Hope.
When I start to think that my studio is getting out of control, I look at pictures of the great Francis Bacon amid the splendid squalor of his.
I believe there is no better example of the inverse relationship between order and creation.
I’ll also be applying clear coat to a piece I finished last week to see if I can bring up some of the colours a bit.
I’m using Revere Pewter (HC-172) from Benjamin Moore in Regal eggshell. I’ve used this colour a few times before and it always looks great.
Here’s how the Benjamin Moore site describes it:
“A light grey with warm undertones, this classic shade creates a unifying look that calms and restores. A great transitional colour, it’s perfect for an open floor plan”.
The house I’m painting does indeed have an open main floor, so this colour is perfect. Here’s the chip.
I tried to clean my studio up a bit. I need a bit of creative clutter to think properly, but it’s starting to get out of control. I managed to get the floor swept, but when I started moving some pieces of Masonite around I came across one that was begging for some paint.
Back on it today.
Then, I’ve got to organize the truck for a job I’ve got coming up.
