light


3rd or 4th updated version
..work in progress on this Ark at the moment - and still a fair number of things to solve. It sails at night, I think (because of the cinema projection on the sheet above.) The sheet thing was the only solution for an open air viewing on such a large vessel and it seems to be strung up with bunting (ha!) and attached to the sky. The movie itself is something scary - at the moment there's just a wolf and a girl running away - but that'll probably develop - I keep thinking of Spirit of The Beehive) which I love.

So the whole thing will be more about light and shade than the previous ones - with the projection beam illuminating all the upturned faces on the deck below etc. Not started on the detail yet - but don't worry Lara and Pot I've reserved your places either side of the aisle on the third row C. Plus I'll be dipping into fb for the most flattering facial photos.

There may well be an usherette to keep the audience under control. I think I'll put any animals in the back rows, out of the way - they'd probably cause havoc any further forward. Bad enough with all the cell phones going off. That thing that looks a bit like a nose to one side of the Ark is actually a volcano. I'm still working out what to draw in this large empty space on the lower right hand side - maybe a face of someone emerging from the sea.. Hmmm what do you think?

I need to add another bit of paper lower left as there wasn't quite enough. Laters.

Lovely, with a bijou cafe en route?

Near by said...

bijou cafe? This isn't Greek Street.
Its an Ark El!
There's a canteen in the shedding - but they only serve seafood and sago pudding for breakfast (same for the animals too)

By the way you're seat no: B4..

My eye was drawn to the figure clutching knees at the back? And only one bird? No twos?

Hi Anna,
yes I asked my daughter to sit and model quickly for me...


The two thing has gone out of the window on this Ark - as there are rather a lot of people. May put another bird on the roof though - in a nest...

Fab, I'll bring a cushion.
