The third of the four words updates - "Balance". This is the one that I was the most clueless about ... "birds and balance?" ... couldn't quite come up with a decent idea. Then my tutors saw this (see the bottom of the post) and said to go with it ... so you get birds 'balanced' on things (I'd prefer to call this piece "Perched"!).
Anyways, whilst I was thinking and planning out silhouettes I could do, I realised that a lot of them fell kind of into one of three categories - urban, industrial, and natural, and that's roughly how the three panels work. I still can quite feel my right index finger from holding my scalpel for so long. But I'm pleased with how they came out.
CRIT: Tutors were very happy with this - they said to go from our last review to this was brilliant. They said the frame could do with a bit of work (draws your attention too much at the moment) and I completely agree, and we talked about how I could improve it by painting and distressing it to be closer in colour to the silhouettes. But thats it! :)
I'm off to hand in my essay today, and then to a funeral tomorrow and a wedding the day after so the last update will have to wait a bit (also because thats the piece I had the most trouble taking pictures of!)
