I am enjoying continuing with my sculpture I started at the workshop in Halifax. It is something that is completely new to me so is harder for me to take completely control of.
This is where I have got so far.
I am really Enjoying how slow it is 🙂
We went all the way to Halifax for my second sculpture workshop. It was at the art centre in the beautiful place below, The Piece Hall.This is my first piece of casting. I had to weave something and include it in the sculpture, this was because of the history of the place we were working in.I have ticked both of my pieces below, which I bought home to work on further.It was a long way to go, but we called in on the Hepworth Wakefield on the way home, which added to our enjoyment of the weekend. 🙂
This is my second finished gesso relief, you may remember it from a recent blog although it looked a little different then. I’m looking to experiment a lot more with this technique, but I’m very pleased with how this piece has turned out, now just to varnish it 🙂
I had a fantastic day on a sculpture workshop at the Sainsbury Centre in Norwich yesterday with artist Desmond Brett. I learnt a variety of techniques that are accessible to me in my own art practice.Negative and positive casting, which included how to correctly mix the plaster. And some sculpture with found objects, Modroc and plaster. this was not using a preconceived idea we were to be led by the materials available.This was as far as I got in the time provided. I am very pleased with it.
I also did some plastering of myself! I had such a good day and learned loads 🙂
I’m just loving collage at the moment so here’s another for you to see.
‘The Green Cockatoo’
This collage was built on an old water colour that I got with a few others in a job lot at a church sale (I have left the original signature and just added mine). It adds to the surreal nature when magazine cuttings etc are applied. I’m really happy with this 🙂
