I don't think you quite understand how great of a picture this is, because the rule of thirds is almost perfect, there is a lot of detail, and the background doesn't distract from the picture. The lighting is great and what shadows are there would not take off from the photo. This had to be a winning shot. State fair ribbon for sure.
Seed Heads and Flowers. Made for Gaynor Wakeley. Made a feature of a large blank wall of a modern extension on a traditional building. The idea was for something to break up the dull looking wall, then after some research Gaynor came up with the idea of basing the wall sculpture around semiabstract drawings of English seedheads based on artwork from her collection. In the end Gaynor came to my studio and did some of the full sized drawings herself. Alan Ross, Herefordshire; artinsteel.co.uk
