In preparation for 'Embracing the Underdog,' a show with the London group next weekend, I have been painting three paper sculptures. I have managed to get paint everywhere apart from all the tiny nooks and crannies; each time I turned the piece over I found another gap. They are all extremely complex constructions and I know they are going to look fab hung in the car park! Meanwhile the studio floor looks like a murder has taken place. Polly the spaniel has a red streak across her tail, I should have dipped it in the paint pot and got her to help, her tail is always wagging!

Thinking to take some quick photos of a newly delivered bronze sculpture, I decided to set up a small area outside with a large sheet of paper as a backdrop. At this point the sun was perfect, it was bright with no strong shadows though it was mighty chilly. I needed to fix the paper to the window using masking tape and I put newspaper down on the step to protect the new paper.
