So here is the provisionally titled 'Thunder' ('Big Thunder' is a horror novel written by Peter Atkins - this is a completely unrelated fact :-) ). It's almost finished - it needs the final paint treatment - which will be burnt umber in an Alkyd flow medium, rubbed into the surface then rubbed off again (trust me - it will work - just look at 'Arc'). This will knock backs some of the brilliance of the white.
Also working on my first sculpture in carved wood! There will be pix soon.
