Complementary Rooster

First day of my May Progress Challenge and I got some clay conditioned and a good start on a new relief.

It’s an experiment in color based on some work I did during the pastel workshop I just took. (More about that and complementary colors later.) So that’s why I’m sculpting a rooster in turquoise instead of my usual white or black.

The two pieces in the background are the color study and pastel painting I did on the second day of the workshop, and the sketch was a value study – all things I’ve never done before. But I may have to keep it up since I found it valuable to work things out ahead of time.

It doesn’t translate exactly, since I’m also adding dimension, but it should be interesting to see how a similar work comes out in polymer clay.
