CRICKET UMPIRE and PASTEL PORTRAIT
Kato - a nice american girl i met at Michael's monday art sessions. She was posing with some kind of communist police helmet. I did the painting in pastels.
Just finished work on this sculpture in DAS air-dry modeling clay. It is a cricket umpire giving the OWZAT sign! It is a present to my dad who won the 'big hitter of the year award' for his local team the Salamagundi Gardeners!
Here it is shown before and after colouring - I rightly predicted I could not resist going over the top on the colours!
