I painted the bottom half blue so at first sight it looks like water and then hopefully people see the legs coming out. I felt if I didn't do this, then it would be boring and the water would be harder to identify. I think my half blue sculpture will put it aside from all the other boring white sculptures. I really think I made the right decision to make mine unique.

This is my final version without color. I have made two legs coming out of water, to show the water I made ripples. My plan for the color is to make the water blue and the legs a skin colored color, like brown. I have finally put the finishing touches on, smoothing the surfaces and getting the right shape and form. Once i had somewhat the correct form i threw the chisel aside andf worked with smaller tools to avoid big mistakes. TO smooth the surface, i used rough surfaces like sand paper to make even surfaces.
My gesture is a very big person, that isnt to coordianted trying to do a hand stand in the pool. To show his clumsiness i made the legs not straight and somewhat on their way down. Henry Moore's work was inspirational to me because is art work is big people with figures that dont have realistic or normal form. In my sculpture I tried to keep that in mind. If I didn't see Henry Moore's amazing sculpture I wouldn't kjnow what would inspire me. looking forward I am going to put on my perfectly placed color and put my sculpture in the Branson hall of fame.
