Another winter forest? 🤔
“Winter Forest II” (?)- Original sculpture by MJ Seal. Sackcloth, jute cords and PVA glue. Approximately 52″ x 46″. C. 2020
This larger cousin to the “Winter Forest I” looks even more animated- and I’m debating if I want to do more than just a gray wash for coloring. There is a lot of movement and I might try scumbling some layers of spring greens, reds and light browns over the dark base coat- so it will kind of resemble a forest in say early April- when the first hints of buds and colors start to make their appearance.
At any rate now that initial sculpting is done it will need a couple weeks to cure- so I’ll have plenty of time for a final decision.
I actually started this piece last February -I think – it’s been sitting on the wall impatiently waiting for me to get back to work on it.
It just needed some extra pieces of shredded burlap and a few more jute cords for some added depth and stability. Now to let it rest and plan my next move- stay tuned 🙃🤗
