Earth Stories - Part 3 (Sculpting the 6-foot tall figure)

I painted the colours of George Archibald's clothing, adding shadows with black paint, directly onto the linen.  Then I sculpted dyed cheesecloth to add texture in those areas.

Cheesecloth dyed to match the background photo was sculpted into position.
