Ascending Spirit WIP


I haven't posted in quite a while because I have been working hard on this project but it is a slow and very new process for me, starting with the amount of thumbanils sketches needed to finally come up with an idea I was satisfied with. Thanks to the mentorship of Michael Newberry I have learned the importance that a piece have a reason and meaning for its creation.


This piece is not even close to being half way done and it needs corrections in what is done but I think the idea of where it is heading, is pretty clear. I still have to establish my vlaues, soften my folds and extend the lace to fill in that space it is in right now. I am truly enjoying this part now since I think compositon and light is on the way to being solved.

I really love your work. I was wondering what you think of www.redbubble.com.au and whether people in North America would like the service (and I know you are in Mexico but have admired your work so thought I could ask anyway)? Any help/advice most well received.

Thanks in advance happy to get your feedback direct via email.
