My little tree.

So, long have I promised these shots. My sculpture is finally finished and I have to try on my photographer’s hat again.

For those of you who haven’t followed the making process of this tree [it’s made of resin and nylon fishing line] then there are details here.

This is how it turned out…

Now… the advice that Miso gave me to use the self-timer to stop any camera shake was good, but… my camera thinks that a black background means it has to automatically use the flash. The next set shows the pearlised resin on the trunk better even tho the canopy is a little harder to see.

So, the colours worked out better without the flash …except… the canopy has glitter embedded in the resin which is very noticeable in reality. So…need for some more snaps…

First a close-up of the trunk altho the pearlised resin is a slightly warmer colour than shown here in the detail…

The following 3 are attempts to show the glitter…

…you can just about make out some green, top right on the photo above..

…and the following one, outdoors, shows the colour best but the autofocus got itself confused…

Anyway, overall you get an idea of how it turned out. All these snaps will appear on Flickr in due course for a better look.

So… I bought some plaster yesterday.

Time for a new one…

  1. Your artwork blows my mind. I love it.

  2. is this RL work influenced by your virtual works? or was it the other way around i wonder?

    Beautiful, love the iridescence. I’ve enjoyed bonsai for some years now so of course I love the composition.
