On our way home, and just one last shot of the scuplture of Gladstone at the front of the estate. The weather for the drive back was as good as we could have hoped for!
Another hobby of mine, as if I didn’t have too many already, is colouring! It’s hard finding books that aren’t all flowers and mandalas, but this one by Kerby Rosanes is really interesting and full of fantasy creatures and beings. It’s called Mythomorphia and the medium I use is Derwent inktense pencils.
This is part of an installation at Artefact cafe Stirchley, by Paul Gittins. It’s an image that can’t capture sound, unfortunately. Sound is the main feature of the installation. In the room, contraptions like this make constant, repeating noises. Beaters attached to clock motors strike various sound inducing objects. It’s cacophonous, but really interesting – as long as you’re in the room with it and it’s not just background noise!
There’s a rock engraved with footprints near me, but it’s not in a place I often pass by, hence my not taking a picture of it sooner. Honestly I am glad I waited for these conditions!
We were at our usual haunt of the 3rd Thursday in a month – the board game meet up at the arts cafe. One rather interesting installation they had was a roll of paper, cascading from the ceiling like a waterfall.
Back at the Royal Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail today, finishing off the trail and getting a few more pictures of the sculptures. This was taken at Raw. Raw is a cube of wood, which was assembled as a way to show the volume of a tree. The wood now is soaked through and caving in, and has all sorts of fungus growing on it.
The story behind this is simple. At half 10, after a day at work and a lazy evening I didn’t have a photo so I asked my mum for ideas. She said ‘a hairbrush’ so that’s what this is.
You don’t tend to see this on photographs, but I wonder why not? Maybe I should add one digitally?
I have more photos from today than I know what to do with, so I might do a big post full of them. My partner and I were walking along the sculpture trail in the Forest of Dean, and I was interested in really looking up close at the parts of the works and how they’ve been affected by nature.
