Help an Aspiring Young Artist Attend London’s ‘Slade School of Fine Art’ this Summer!

After help from Barry Lewis and my tutor, I finally finished my Headdress for the Green City Events Ocean Plastics Campaign. I used many different materials including the corners of a sandcastle for the spires. My main colour palette was gold and green as they mimicked the colours of the mermaid tales an associate was making. I added a little splash of purple as I thought this would give it some character.

Overall I am incredibly happy with the design. I think it is really complementary of the 'mermaid' cliche, and the grande design makes it seem it is for someone who is royal.

Hello All, As part of an Green City Events Ocean Plastics Campaign in Wales, I have been asked to create Mermaid headdresses - http://www.greencityevents.co.uk/who-we-are/. So on Tuesday I visited Barry Lewis in Wales at his studio, to get some inspiration. Barry sculpts amazing pieces of art out of recycled material, check out his work at http://barrythesculptor.wixsite.com/barrylewissculptures. I'll keep you updated on how it goes.
