Barbara Hepworth 3D forms

We chose one of our observational sketches to inspire our abstract natural forms.  We learned a new skill of paper mache: 2 layers of newspaper and then cardboard additions to recreate features of the seed heads.  Finally we added a layer of tissue paper to even out the surface.

Once dry, we chose natural and metallic coloured paints which were chosen to represent Barbara Hepworth’s use of stone and bronze in her sculpture.
