This time I bought a pot of Dulux Melon Sorbet. The colour and the grid I painted on the wall reflected the new foliage on the trees and a certain expansiveness and airiness. I added some rectangular grey and green elements to two of the other walls, but I’m not sure why other than just to try to activate those spaces.

The walk knackered me out. A problem with this experiment is that it is quite tiring! The most interesting thing I saw was the overgrown old cemetery – I noticed the classical entrance down a side street of Eccelsall Rd. I’ve included some shots of the cemetery with pics of today’s work.
