feet (formation cont….)

Working title:  Formation

New work continues. I’ve worked the head and the upper extremities. This weekend’s focus, the lower extremities.

How will this fit together visually? Won’t really know until all the parts are sized and completed. Right now there are at least 5 (parts). I have a few more to paint, then I’ll start piecing it together.

The feet, all about being grounded. Foundation. Connection. Balance. Mobility. Direction.
26 bones. 33 muscles. 31 joints. Over 100 ligaments.
Rooting…into the earth. Feet are feeling strong, firm and planted these days.

Original sketch.

I do like this but I want a stronger design.

Processing feet.

Clear, white structure sits atop a black gessoed, solid background.

Some roots, some seeds…some play, some ground.

Satisfied.  A clear and stable design with some flow and play.
They’re my feet.
Onto the legs.
To be continued….
