Diary: Glasgow. 1st Nov
Cold clear day – found yesterday’s work – so bright light – decided to make it bigger – wind getting stronger – hung in tree – amazing light – swaying in wind – [...] very difficult to photograph. Still I think I managed it. Very pleased.
Late on made yellow strips in muddy leaves – was
going to make point but leaft it open ended.
Work completed and recorded 1st November 1986.
