“Dressed to impress “.

by timpughartist

The woodland installation was created at Hawarden Woods in Flintshire , North Wales in October 2016.I borrowed a coathanger from a nearby clothes shop and proceeded to sketch out an outline of a wedding dress into the soft soil.I then filled in the interior space with carefully selected beech leaves , graduating the colours as I went . The effect was like the scales  of a fish and the colours of the leaves echoed the seasons of the woodland to maximum contrasting visual effect.The presence of a slight breeze threatened to disrupt the artwork but by late afternoon , all was calm again .The artwork took 5 hours to create and was covered in a new carpet of fallen leaves within a day.
