Exercise Three // Lucia Pearla

May 22 2020
Hi  Lucia,   to kick off exercise one,  where are you? 

At my mums house in Bristol.


How has your process changed since staying at home?

The scale of my work has gotten a lot smaller. I’m mainly working out of sketchbooks, using less oil paints and more water based paints.


Whats last or current song you listened to (no cheating, we all have naughty


Megan Thee Stallion ft Beyonce - Savage.


and the last or current show/film/video you watched ?

Grey's Anatomy.


What are you reading right now?

Soo many articles about Covid-19.


What’s the last thing you cooked? (recipes welcome!)

Mushroom Carbonara.


 What's the next thing you are going to cook?



If everything in your house was going to be the same colour what colour

would you choose?

White (my paintings use a lot of colour and my studio gets very messy, that a blank wall can be refreshing).

Which words or phrases do you most overuse  ?
 'You know?'
Do you have any superstitions?

Walking under a ladder is bad luck.


What makes you laugh (feel free to share any videos, memes, record a

joke, your pet)
Being with my friends!

 Which artist-living or dead would you like to share your quarantine practice with? Why?

Hilma Af Klint, her work is crazy but very peaceful at the same time. Her connection to a spiritual world influenced her colours and shapes, being able to work next to her would be very inspiring.


Exercise 2

Write a drawing prompt you would like someone else to receive:

Draw what’s behind you, using only pink.


We are probably going to get through a lot of these homework sheets - so

write a question for other people that you want to know the answer to ?

How often are you creating new works that you enjoy?


We are putting together a mixtape -  what’s your go to song for dancing ?

being in the studio ?
Rihanna - Work
