I’m speechless after reading Minois’ biography, not because the end was so tragic but because I have literally lost my voice. I’m also still more or less immobile because of the pinched nerve. Haven’t done much painting the past couple days, too sick.

Art school: finished three paintings and am now making small studies for our next assignment.

At home I have done quite some work on Ilion and a bit on Nemrut Dagi but nothing about the van der Weyden copy of Charles the Bold, or Antoine or Oscar.

Painted a number of A4 size portraits. Started a small contemporary scene based on a picture of a larp game we hosted quite a while ago and started a large canvas freely based on a collage of silent movies. Been trying out several versions of Egidius. These are all first layers:

A4 study of Egidius
Erik, incapacitated while larping – 25x30cm – first layer
Monthléry – 60×80 – first layer in progress. Painting freely based on a collage of silent movie stills. I’m painting over Animo Inquieto, that one wasn’t going anywhere. Colours dried up a little murky and I still have to add most of the background.
