Natural Theatrical

So this week I took the week off work to make some progress in that clock case

(Memory refreshing photo)

I wasn't going to do much blogging about it along the way - I find this is occasionally disasterous. Anyway, it's not much of an idea, I ended up doing a design for a woman riding a giant fish - pffft - again. I just need to work through the fish thing :)

Anyway, bizarrely the most decorative part of the case - the doors - have gone! Yes, I took them off to fix the hinges and decided it looks better without them ... Ta dah!

Still needs some kind of front decoration to cover up the nooks and crannies of whatever gets
installed so I cut some bits of ply. I really wish I had better tools and a bigger workshop for this kind of thing - but ye have to make do. So I just cut it on my overcluttered desk and cursed like a navvy.

Some waves, I love doing waves and clouds

Start the fish and construct some wobbly apparatus to try him out in there

There's a ways to go and my back started playing up today - I need to stop now and hope that it's fine tomorrow.

Beautiful work, I love painting and find it amazing the amount of detail you can get on the smallest space, it's incredible! I can't wait to see the next stage :)
