Hyacinth Relief

We had friends round the other day and I was bought a lovely bunch of spring flowers which included some beautiful hyacinths. I was inspired to use one for a relief.

When pressing this into the clay I wasn’t sure how it was going to come out.But I went for it anyway, the challenge is the driving force for me.Peeling back the clay is very satisfying. This is how it turned out.It still needs a bit of cleaning up but I’m very pleased! 🙂

Second plaster/gesso experiment using one of my own lino blocks.

Discovered that it’s quite hard to get the impressions level, but I like the result.

Just got to think about colour now! 🙂
