for the past month or so i've worked on two sites. one is a federal job on the marine base in kaneohe , the other is a residential job in kapolei. i've taken a few pictures of our progress so far, i'm only posting the kapolei pics today.. more to come:
the last couple days we've mostly been fabricating stone for the walkways and waterfall. the pile of rocks on the right will be the waterfall/koi pond, the pile of junk in the middle is what we use to make the stepping stones.
here you can see the stones we make in three stages: 1. (bottom left) junk brick/stone/anything we can find. 2. (bottom right) mixture of gravel and cement is added 3.(middle, around the edge of the pond) a final layer of cement is added, pressed with a textured skin, and powdered with dye. (the rocks inside the pond are real)
so i have an 8'x4' sheet of birch ply i want to use for a large scale woodcut and print on fabric/washi with a baren... the only problem with this plan is that i've just been staring at it instead of drawing on it. it seems like i should have a substantial image to fit the size (and damage to my wallet).
anyways, i'll post some progress as soon as some progress happens :)
here's some sketches/ideas that i'm leaning towards:
