A few hiccups this week, but cranked out some new work in the end. After a few months, I finally have CatsEye/Eclipse/GitHub operable on my new laptop (a big thanks to collaborator Ben Jack who helped me fix it – at 5 a.m. England time!). I also decided to give up on casein during this residency; it’s just not as intuitive as when applied over plywood – I’m painting everything here on paper. There is a Nihonga shop nearby in Ueno, which would be cool to test out while I’m here – I doubt Gordon Harris carries such supplies 🙂
Still not much exploring up to this point – I was hoping to have 10 finished works before loosening my studio leash. Only have 6 so far.
