Moai (Aka Easter Island Head) at Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. He’s right behind the guards who perfunctorily check your bag.
Combination of wet and dry graphite creates interesting stone texture. Did you ever played with Luster stone or other italian plasters? Endless options, but on primed surface.
Thanks, Nikira! What I really wanted was some “splatter” effects but decided to limit myself to the waterbrush on hand which is too soft for that technique. (The waterbrush from Blue Heron Arts is otherwise my favorite.) I set out to combine wet and dry layers to get a comparable effect.
Where do find Luster stone? I’ve never heard of it. And, by primed, do you mean Gessoboard?
this reminds of BULUL rice god figures in Bontoc, Philippines..
beautiful work! i love it
Thank, LaPrima. I wonder if there is some ancient relationship between them out in the Pacific. Looking at images of Bulul and Moai, the only repeated difference that I saw were more pronounced brow line in the moai.
