Darkness and Light

Now working on the light is beginning to really pay off. A black glaze over the background ragged off at the boundaries of a circle about the glowing orb has made the composition start to take more dramatic shape. The orb will get a blue glaze to drop it back a little, and there’s some shadow work to do on Amelia’s right side. I want to pick out the flame from the orb and I’ve really got to get on with doing the feet – she’s still floating! I must get her to stand on the ground.

I’m making arrangements to get Sean’s exhibit out of the gallery, and to get the next show in. Ceramics this time, by Kathy Wagonner, whose work I admire. We’ll hold an opening reception for her in a week after this Saturday, at 7.00pm, if you’re able to come to the University.
