This is my first attempt to combine a painting with a sculpture. I intend to return to this piece after putting it aside for awhile. Meanwhile, could you please give me your honest feedback? Are the painting and the sculpture complimenting or fighting against each other? The painting looks too busy, or the figure, too dirty? Are the colors working? Any input is appreciated.
My first attempt to combine a painting with a sculpture is making progress. Her hands will hold an image of water, which I intend to make out of transparent hot glue or epoxy. She is certainly not a model beauty, but she has a healthy body and hopefully you see her inner fullfilment.
No, I am not giving up ceramic sculpting, but this is my first attempt to combine a painting with a sculpture. When the entire piece is completed, the elongated painting (left) will be diaplayed like the maquette (right lower corner). Definitely the influence of 3-D work is visible here, and I am happy with the texture (enlarged images).
"Who would want to buy a painting like this?" a friend asked me when he saw my drawing (posted below). "It doesn't matter," I answered to him, "because I made this for myself." Surprisingly more than two decades later, a woman inquired me of this buried artwork. I had moved five times since the drawing was made, and I was worried it might not be sellable. Last week, during the holidays, I took a roll of my old drawings out of a storage room. "The Midwest's dry weathers were like my Santa," I said in smile. They have preserved the conditions of my drawings very well.
The inquiry to purchase this drawing was a scam. The woman insisted to email me her credit card number, its expiration date and security code even though my current store on Etsy accepts all the major credit cards, personal checks, and money orders. I am not sure how she could have stolen money from me, but when I declined to receive her credit card information via email she stopped contacting me. This time I caught it before being tricked, but this experience taught me to be extremely careful when I deal with online sales.
