additional exercise using all materials above:
please be with me as usual


n.10 is about valuing what there is, without giving it too much importance as it is only as good as God makes it
Raw Sienna – to me seems about framework, structure – it is a warm reddish yellow
n.3 Respect, painted in Raw Umber, this is a dark yellow, the word comes from Italian Ombra or French Ombre, both meaning shadow
Respect – from the Latin respicere re back specere to look at
mirroring and shadows, both forms of duplicating in a way parhaps in the images
Respect – implies care – applying the paint carefully perhaps
n.6 be tolerant, everything is dear to God, this seems about the detail
painted in Manganese Bue Hue which to me symbolises money or correctness, so perhaps true, actual shapes, like circles, squares and triangles
