Lines 6 ..Drugged coffee


It seems slow going at the moment..mainly due to the fact that the picture is quite big..(on A2 sized paper) and is quite dark (whats new?) But I had to get the sky to come over to the main subject so I could begin to see what the depth of contrast I had to work towards. Sometimes I can work for ages on a dark area only to add in a darker area and find out that the first area needs going over a couple of times to increase the depth of colour/shade etc...
Today I went into the residential home to run my art group. I had a few interesting conversations about the history of he Arboretum (see earlier posts) . One of the staff gave me my Milky Coffee..those of you who've read my blog at the begining will remember the famous 'Frothy Coffee' incident where I drank what turned out to be either someones spit, or the semi disolved remains of some unswallowed medication! Today I accepted my drink and drank it. When I got home I was feeling a little giddy..(It think mainly due to me being in need of my lunch) but after a sandwich, I went upstairs and fell asleep. Maybe I had fallen victim to drugged coffee....maybe this is what the staff give to the residents to stop them running away? I told Jan about this and asked her to keep an eye on me in case I ended up snoring in my chair, drooling and incontinent. She asked me if there were any other signs she could look for as I already did the others!.....The cheek!

The layers you add to the pictures must take up a lot of time but really add to it -- great art!!! Love the previous one, too ...

Best be careful with those harmless-looking drinks...
I heard a similar story yesterday: when my Mum was younger she stole some tangerines from a garden and she left a note after eating them saying ...if something happened to her, it was the tangerines! :)
