Redon's thoughts on other artists, his own work and his reflections on life are a joy to read - here is an example: 'Leisure is not a privilege; it is not a favour, it is not a social injustice, it is the beneficial necessity by which the spirit is fashioned as well as a taste and the discovery of oneself' (Redon O. 1986: P88)
And he continues: ' I prefer the spirit of Degas to the spirit of his works' (Redon O. 1986: P88) I am definitely inclined to agree with this!
I would like to try something similar and I have checked out a few sites so that I can do this digitally - Diaryt.com was having issues so I decided it was too unreliable. So I checked out Penzu.com:
Penzu was okay except that most features that would make it interesting such as the customisation you needed to go Pro and pay for. I decided that this was not an option and I wanted to keep this fairly straightforward.
I looked at Monkkee.com this was much better completely free and simple with a user-friendly interface that seems to work well. I thought I would give this one a try and if I really disliked it I can move to another site
So after this consideration about how I would do this, I completed my sign off form.
