Margaret’s portrait of Kate

Margaret's portrait of Kate

 

This portrait of Kate by Margaret is finally, after an immersive, protracted to and fro, is near to a finish.

I am so happy to say so!

Margaret is a very interesting and intelligent painter, but has a terrible habit of wiping off a days work with the intention of starting fresh next session. Then, inevitably, making the same marks again and being similarly unsatisfied with that days work!

It took me too long to insist that she leave the work in the studio to avoid the scrape away process when she got home.

I am so glad I did though. It was the codebreaker to the enigma that was Margaret’s process. When she avoided wipeoff, then began layering and adjusting, it all fell into place.
