A Barbara Hepworth inspired mosaic

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 -

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 -

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!
