Ugh. This one wasn't even a labour of love, just labour. I didn't much like it from the off but felt it important to finish. I've always been of the mind that if you work and work at an image without any real joy, then the resultant image reflects just that. But I've been wrong before and when it's viewed objectively with fresh eyes by someone else it can be well received, so I persevered on this occasion nonetheless.
I've done three in a series of "Cardiff" studies now and will take a break as the repetition bores me. I fancy creating something not from real life. I always shy away from it, I don't know why. But I've been inspired by two fantastic artists recently at SPA Studios; Marcin Jakubowski and Szymon Biernacki. I'm sure I've got that kind of thing in my locker, but I never pull it out to play with. Come on!
