Doodling along my way, I forget the billboards in the Metro.
They fling at us (only a few examples):- the view of a giant perfume bottle with a naked famous actress underneath, - a bunch of very happy people celebrating because they got a bonus for having bought a new cellphone, - a feeble 12 year old model wrapped into a vest made of rabbitskin, latest fashion attribute.
I forget the sight of the poor people sitting there, under the bright billboards, spending the day in the metro stations, dozzing, drinking or just waiting or sleeping or socializing with the other poor devils, because they don't have anywhere else to go.
I call this Doodle painting "Chaos in Eden" but could also call it "Never mind" because that is what I thought when I doodled the drawing yesterday evening, stucked in the window-seat in the metro, with a big person at my left and those haunting billboards popping up on my right.
The person was looking on my pages and at my drawing hand (my non dominant hand) and I thought: Oh, well, don't worry, be happy, just draw what you see inside, never mind.
This morning I took the Winsor and Newton palette with the 5 colours I'm studying at the moment : cobalt blue, alizarin crimson, vermillion, windsor green, cadmium yellow, and coloured the study, with my left = non dominant hand. Feels awkward, but different, funny.
