I had the choice of working in monochrome or colour - biro or paint.
I chose to paint. That choice became the bane of my life for 2 weeks.
I've never been a fast painter, out of all the things I'm slow at, it may be the thing I'm slowest at. I gave myself 7 intricate paintings to do, because compromise wasn't an option for this vision.
2 weeks is a long time without sleep.
