I have always been interested in arts and literature and now I'd like to present works of my own.
She really does look like a faded metal statue :D XXX
Thank you Gina! :-) xox
Ilona, I just popped over from Paris to visit your blog. It is fun to see other things that you create, from what we are posting on the "somewhere to sketch" blog. Nice pieces!! I like that you are doing so many portraits. That is quite a challenge.
Hi Joan, nice to welcome you here :-)Thank you for your kind words! I love to do portraits, but it's a challenge to do a new one every day.Ilona
Thank you Valerie!
Hi llona, hope all is good. Love your sculpture. It is coming along beautifully. Very nice work.:) Have a great week.
Hi Gloria, all is well over here. Hope you are well too!?Thank you for the compliment :-)Wishing you a wonderful week!
Oh, I thought that You have cast Your statue to bronze. It is very amaising. Best Wishes :-)
I wish I were able to do that, Uuna! Thank you and wish you all the best as well! :-) Ilona
Very nice, it looks so aged and textured. Just wonderful!
Your lovely statue looks like bronze or something. Wonderful job!
The metallic paint really highlights the lights and shadows on the sculpture. I like the angle of the last photograph best.Did you use a self-hardening clay, or has it been through a kiln?
Thank you Jez! I used ordinary white clay with some grog. I didn't bake it (or get it baked rather, I don't have a kiln!!!) I just sculpt and do what ever comes to my mind. I painted on a mask I did in February, and it is now dry and sitting on a shelf in my study. I let the new face-sculpture dry slowly and hope to be able to put it on a plinth of some kind, so it will be able to stand properly for itself. I envy you for your art-education ;-) sculpture would certainly have been my choice of subject!
Your comments make me happy!
