"Upside Down "
For this project all my sketches had sometime to do with the weather and rain. In the end it came down to two sketches that I really liked, I couldn't choose so I tried to incorporate both into one. Wire is the predominating material that was used in my piece, however I also used glass beads for the rain drops, and fabric for parts of the umbrella. I had a lot of trouble with balanceing the two clouds and lightning. Each were differnt sizes and it was hard to get the light weight rain drops to make up the difference between the clouds. I found that time was another challenge, there was so more I wanted to do with the umbrella, but time was not on my side.
