notation



At this particular time, I am away from painting.
Evaluation of past work is a good thing.
Sometimes work is left too quickly or just not understood.
I found this in the archives, from a time when I was looking at dance notation. Notation is a method to record and learn choreography for composer and dancer. There are a number of standard methods that have been devised over the years.
Reflecting on this I made a watercolour that describes an imaginary dance and a notation of my own making.

This was a rich source of idea and sensation to use for painting and revisiting it is a powerful reminder of what all those dance picture could still lead too.
