Hello blogger friends,
A while ago I wrote about our visit to Barbara Hepworth's studio in St Ives, and it's been in my mind for a while to make a mosaic inspired by her great sculptures.
Here is the link to the blog post I wrote, if you fancy a read - http://justmosaics.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/the-inspirational-barbara-hepworth.html
Her work is now being exhibited in the Tate, London if you get a chance to see it - we are planning a trip in September - http://www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-britain/exhibition/barbara-hepworth-sculpture-modern-world
When planning this Barbara Hepworth inspired mosaic, I decided just to use one colour, and as she lived in St Ives, it had to be blue for the amazing sea and sky nearby.
I collected my range of blues, chose five or six and started, trying to capture the light and shade of the beautiful shape of the sculpture.
This is how I have done so far .... it has made me look at her work so closely, and appreciate the beauty of it even more ...
I will show you when it is finished - these things can't be rushed!
