Next in line is CHUNKIE Mermaid created from plasticine with a gold head piece of elastic woven into a plaited piece…she sports some glitter on her tail and is actually resting deep on the ocean bed….the background is actually 3 photographs of the beach at Lennox Head, i went for a walk yesterday with Scott and Nudge (our dog) and it was so beautiful and overcast the greens and blues were so lovely…..been touched up lots on the computer, her eyes and kiss curls added digitally. I hope you enjoy her :)
Once the Chunkies are created and photographed, I usually dismantle them to be used in the creation of more chunkies, so I am recycling the plasticine. These Chunkies have been very therapeutic to create over the holidays, whilst taking a break from red bubble and having my family around. I have many more to come, and although I won’t be on RB as much, I hope to also be doing some serious painting this year…so i look forward 2009 with much anticipation …
