I have an intention to create three standing figures for placement under the wild cherry trees in front of my studio. I hope to make them approximately 4′ tall, varying the heights slightly. I am not sure what these statues will be made of, or even how they may eventually look; things change (especially in my art).
My concept is they will be simplified standing figures, very upright … a bit in the line of old-fashioned clothes peg dolls. So I started doodling, first in graphite & watercolor, followed by some digital pixel dust, of course.
The last concept is an attempt to get practical about implementation as a sculpture. It is based on using PVC or ABS pipes of various diameters for the figures, except for the head & shoulders. The figures could be free standing, with the pipe legs could fitted over stakes in the ground, that could run up into the torsos. Might work!
I could then pad & wrap the figures for cementitious outer layers if I want to add detail, curves and different proportions than available with pipes.
