Well so far this week off has been a good chance to settle down and get thinking about what art I should try and do. I started off playing with Gouache in my little cupboard studio in my flat. But while this was enjoyable, I knew that this would lead nowhere without some subject matter. So I have done a couple of pen drawings from inside my flat – a strange return to Edinburgh domesticity – which is where I started back in 1989. The drawings are very familiar but I am glad to have done them and will continue to do more and see where it takes me.
