I’m still engaged in the completion of these two pictures. In the previous 6 posts you have seen some developments but still I’m not satisfied. For the moment I leave them as they are but I’ll work on these imaginaries again sometime in the future.
The images are based on a sculpture of artist Ulrich Riek from Napier in South Africa. His work is exhibited in the Southern Wright Gallery in Cape Agulhas; near the Southernmost point of the African Continent.
