Preparations for a painting journey


Ninety one prepared card supports for painting in the UK, where I shall be for a few weeks, in London and Scotland. I calculate of painting between one and three pictures a day.

I like to have a variety of differently coloured supports. A medium tonality is most flexible: but sometimes it's interesting to work with- or against- bright colours or even black. backgrounds. If the support colour is too dark it can lend an unhappy heaviness to the picture.

I am anxious about the journey, though in truth there is little that is likely to go wrong: I have a certain "what if x happens tendency" which leads me to imagine endless difficulties unnecessarily.
