WIP - Hands and Sandstone Cliffs

I was starting to think I had made a mistake adding the vertical lines to this piece, that there's no way they could occur naturally on cliffs, after all most color deliniation lines we see are horizontal in the forms of layers right?  Wrong.  My gut instinct was correct the proof came when I was browsing through some photos of the local limestone cliffs.

I was greatly encouraged when I came across this batch of photos this evening.  So in addition to working on the computer tomorrow, I'll be pushing this hands piece even further.


Time to make some encrusted fabrics as well, this is a section of the same sandstone cliffs in the above photos.

WIP - Hands

More hand prints.  It is sooooooo unbelievably hot and dry here, normally we have a humidity level around 50% or higher this time of year, which is causing problems with drying times.  Problems as in everything is drying within minutes, sometimes seconds, making it difficult to work the cloth.
