18 August

I am confined to home for a few days following a positive covid test yesterday. It’s just like a bad cold at the moment so I am hoping it doesn’t get any worse. I had a go at a portrait in oils using a detail from Botticelli’s Primavera, one of my favourite paintings. I struggled with adding detail but have been advised that I was using the paint too thick and need to build it up in layers so I think ai will scrape some off and try again while I have the time.
