Last month, I had the pleasure of visiting Broomhill and experiencing the sculpture park for the first time. Broomhill has a beautiful setting, made vibrant with works by Artists such as Sandy Brown and Roland A. Westerhuis both in the grounds and displayed within the Gallery. My visit allowed me to consider the colour variation in the landscape and the materials that would work best within the environment.
Once back in my studio, I created a 3D render of the maquette to replicate the sculpture on a larger scale. A projection of the model onto a polyurethane block whilst carving, allowed me to work through the varied aspects of the structure. Using imagery taken at the location, the sculpture was superimposed into landscape and final adjustments were made. Colour variations were considered and altered until deciding on a matt white to juxtapose the environment.
