Two photographers were passing by, giving some welcome respite to the rigours of getting deeper into the block. Scooter Scout (his image above) was interested in the quality of shadows and it was noticeable how these changed with the sun coming and going. As birds seem to be creeping into the block, we talked about the form of herons today and how they weren’t desperately suited to sculpture because of their fine-ness, whereas the less gangly Barn Owl translates far better into a simplified form.
Contrast this image by Anne Purkiss with the similar record from Day 11 on the blog.
