Random casting - wild pour

A day of random plaster casting.

One commissioned fresco - the plaster poured into a frame ready for an illustrative fragrant orchid with pollinator. The first of the two completed, this is the partner to the pyramidal orchid.

I like the random shape of my Craig-Y-Nos verbascum - so I poured the left over plaster to make the shape it wanted - ready for the larger painting of aquilegia.

We cast ourselves off into the coalfield and walked the dog under turbines and pylons.

We came across a Monet pond with reeds and waterlilies, marsh orchids and birdsfoot trefoil, grasses and dark clouds.

All this integrity and beauty on the doorstep.
The terraces and the coal tips
Seven Sisters.

The rain was pouring and the wildness got into my soul.
