Very important: I listened to my favorite music at the moment: Vivaldi's "Winter" from the Four Seasons, played by musicians outdoor in Venice, another treat! It is so fascinating to sea the video clip, carnival in Venice!!! Love this peace all together! It reminds me of my visit in Venice in November 2011, the 54th Art biennale. It's starting again soon (in June?) Would love to go again!!!!!!! :D Maybe I will... Enough of that ;-)
So here is a lump of clay:
After a few minutes you can see the first facial features:
The next few photos the face is slowly being worked out:
Below it looks quite like a face,
but the profile is not done:
To be able to work out the profile, I have hollowed the lump:
Now it was easier to work on the features, but the clay also easily creased, so I had to be careful:
This is how far I went within an hour. Still a lot to proceed on before I would call it finished!
To give you an idea of the size of the face I took some photos, using the face as a mask:
It is about 23 cm.
One new photo!!! But still some way to go:
Sculpting is my favorite art form. But it is also a very time consuming and complex process. Also it is something I have least experience with, as painting and drawing is more easily done in between my main duties!!!
So before starting on duties again (14th) I experimented with the face, making marks and adding colour. Please let me know, what you think about the result!
Hope you enjoyed this, I did :-)
Happy 29 faces!
and the Paint Party Friday!!!
