#81, Moment of Reflection relief

Moment of Reflection, 18 1/2"x 13 1/2" x 2 1/2", resin

Moment of Reflection, 17"x12"x1 1/2", clay for fiberglass resin

I'm pretty happy with the way this 17"x12" bas relief came out. The likeness isn't one of my best, but I think the composition makes up for it. I had struggled with how to do the arms since they are cropped (this is a constant battle I have). After looking up one of my favorite painters to see how he addressed this, I seem to have solved the issue. The highest point is 1 1/4" raised from the background which is about 5/16" higher than most of my previous bas-reliefs. I've decided that I like working slightly higher as the piece gets larger in dimensions.
