I made these sculptures and decided to photograph them quite a while back. It was just an experiment on lighting, colour and texture. I thought it would be quite a good idea for painting, and I was very much inspired by Will Cotton at the time.
New piece is up! I've finally completed this painting of Nadira at 5 months. I decided to add foliage to complete the piece (my typical pink lotus flowers, and a little bird). I tried to to make it look as realistic as possible. The arms were the most difficult aspects to paint - it took me hours and hours of repainting because I just couldn't get the tonal values right. It's not perfect, but I'm glad it's finally done! Click HERE to see previous entries on this work.
