Point of Contact

I'm nearly done working on Point of Contact.

Here are some images from the various stages of development...

The idea started with a hook I removed from the back of another piece.

I jotted it down in the form of a quick doodle in the 'notes' section of my phone so I wouldn't forget it.

As soon as I could, I committed it to one of my sketchbooks so I wouldn't lose it.

A few weeks later, I started its actual fabrication...

I laid out the cardboard shapes and noted how thick I wanted to make each individual piece (that's what the numbers one each section mean).

Then I cut them out and started to cover each individual section with fabric.

I adhered the sections in their proper configuration using a picture I took of the initial layout.

I primed them with several coats of paint and then finally applied oil paint to get nearer to my desired final result.

This is pretty close what I want as a finished piece.  Just a few color additions and some slight tweaking and I think Point of Contact will be officially completed.

I did have a second hook from that initial piece.  Perhaps someday I will make a version 2.0...?
