New Heads

Following on from the clay maquette from November 2011 here we have the cast resin finished piece. Quite small at 17cm I feel it still has presence. Bronze may have been better but starting these things gently takes the pressure off and allows me to breathe easier.
There is and ancient flavour in the form that still stands up well in the 21st C, a form that carries a sort of windblown fortitude, resolute and assured.
My question is still about finish, one is in verdigris, one verdigris that's been rubbed back some and the third is painted in a putty colour, which one I prefer is still undecided, no doubt others will waste no time in advising me . . . . .
