more figures out and about

One of the interesting finds on a recent walk were these beautifully coloured leaves which had come from a Hardenbergia – a native creeping/climbing plant with purple flowers. It is now a common garden plant but grows naturally in Eucalypt woodlands. Made for a nice little art out and about figure, even if he does look a little like some sort of jointed wooden toy or something. That is what is keeping me interested in these figures really; the way in which each new material brings it’s own qualities to the figure and influences the way in which I use it.

Once I do one figure, it tends to get me into the right unhurried frame of mind and others often follow quickly. That day it was Grevillea and Apple flowers that caught my eye.
