Studiologue: Goodbye 2013, Hello 2014

2013 was a really good year for me in terms of art because of some meaty personal breakthroughs and epiphanies. My top 2 were:

1. Invest time and energy into “wow pieces” that take weeks to complete rather than just doing quick hits all the time.
2. Intense detail on a large scale is magic.

It has been a slow start to 2014 — slightly trepidatious even. I’m a bit scared that I won’t have new ideas and that I’ve forgotten how to draw and other such silliness. I think it’s just part of the heave-ho of beginning again though. Now I’m in the middle of another meadow and another moth I can think of no other place I’d rather be.

    I met an artist on a retreat at The Abbey, Oxford once who made drawings of rocks in meticulous detail each 1m x 1m picture taking up to a year.

    It struck me then – how wonderful to be so obsessive. Detail on a large scale does it for me – Sacre Coeurs in matchsticks.
