I’ve been spending today sketching out ideas and making things for a series of pieces of artwork - photographs and lino prints - that I’ll be creating in April if I can sort everything out (find a model, get everything ready in time, etc).
I’m pleased with the crow skull necklace - I think it looks perfect for the forthcoming photographs. I bought the “skulls” off eBay - they’re actually resin replicas of crow skulls. I gave them a wash of brown paint then wiped the raised surfaces clean, which gave them a sufficiently grubby look.
Work will start on the mask shortly.
