In case you’re new here: this adventure started in white, then I felt the need for color, played with it a couple of ways, wasn’t happy (don’t get me started on the bases I tried) so I asked the community- both IRL & digital- for some feedback. Amazingly people responded with a variety of reasons for liking the different finishes and the dialog really helped me land on something I feel enhances the work without distracting from the form.
As promised, here is the finished piece. The surface of the Indian Rosewood base is glossed with a hint of silver to reference the surface of water, I decided to break up the solid fields of color with white “foam” flicks to add to the movement of the piece.
Thanks to all who were part of that dialog - it really helped!
