The first Robin has hatched from the foundry and I have made the first colour trials to echo that iconic orange-red breast.
It is in the study of any species you start to discover information about them that may have been seen but not really 'noticed'.
The orange tones of feathers are found above the beak and above and below the gleam of dark eye. The sides and lower breast feathers are more grey in tone than white and the browns of the back rather lighter than true bronze.
From all this and with the help of the detail in the sculpture and the use of heat, chemicals, paints, dyes and waxes my interpretation of the Robin Bright Gift.
Next some photography trials outdoors.
Here the first photos
