Today is my Birthday
The photograph on the right was the first one I worked on but after I got to this point I was not happy with the fabric. I always hate to give up but I seem to be able to finally come to the conclusion when enough is enough.
I started over again this morning. I knew that I was going to before I entered the studio. I thought about it a lot last night, looked at the photos I always take of my progression and made the decision to start over.
My biggest decision other than the change of fabric was to work with the negative space. Sometimes I find it much easier to see the negative space. When the Batman icon was put out there years ago, it took me months to finally see the bat. Sooo, I decided that I was going to take the shapes of the shadows and try to sculpt the tree stump. I'm pretty happy so far, it has a long way to go but I feel good about the beginning.
