dance development

A confession. This scrap of joined paper is the result of 4hrs work.
It is a universal 'known' that development is invariably slow, that progress is hard won. Last week ended with me having a canvas on which were some crude dancers along with two sheets of paper carrying the same idea. This arrangement contained drama, but was in itself unsatisfactory. The afternoon has been employed with watercolour and ink working and re-working the figures over and over with little sucess. After supper I returned to work and with a pencil and after an hour assembled this piece, on reflection it was regarded as worth transferring to the canvas. There is always work, but work I believe is more to be trusted than the lucky break!
