Three versions of my Green Goddess Gwyneth, am I happy? Not yet, but I'm getting there.
The colored (varnished) version was the first, let's call her the
Mexican Goddess, acceptable but not what I wanted my Leaf Lady to be
like. Second Gwyneth, the Art-Nouveau version I quite like with her
ivory face and brown wreath but not particularly very spring-like I'm
afraid. Thirdly, the Mediaeval version which I like best because of the
mainly green color palette (she's a green goddess afterall).
want to do a plain version, like weathered stone without color, or even a
bronze one because the sculpture in itself is well modeled and maybe
doesn't need paint at all.
It's an adventure, I'm not quite there yet but on my way.
