Test Shots from Come Home to Roost
A quick note on my studio process. As pieces are up and running there are many decisions to be made regarding color, scale, composition, etc. Often if I’m stuck between possible directions I will set up some quick shots of the various options and make the decision based on what I see in the photos rather than what I’m seeing in the actual sculpture. Stupid? Maybe… but it seems to work for me.
Here are a couple of shots I used in Come Home to Roost as a means of choosing the style of fence I was going to use. Obviously the figure is completely different than what appears in the final piece but it is the overall feel of the two fence styles I was trying to choose between.
