The Eight Elemental Amphibians (of Sally Williams) - Panel #7
I saved panel #7 for last not only because it's probably my favorite out of all of them, but also because the photos turned out so well, including non-blurry close-ups. I've given some thought as to why this one is (maybe) most successful, and concluded (at least in part) that I was thinking the least about how this one would fit into the piece as a whole as I was working on it. For the others I was trying harder to incorporate certain colors or elements to fit the theme. Creating an installation that works together as a whole and as separate individual pieces is never quite as simple as it looks in my sketchbook. But, I really enjoy working this way and I think I'm improving at it.
Well, now you've seen all eight panels of the finished piece (or if you haven't, just take a look at the previous seven posts, or at this Flickr set).
