The NYC trip was my 4th workshop/project with Val and for this one I was worked on "Alexander The Great" which is taken from the famous coin of Alexander with the ram's horn of the Egyptian god Ammon. This project is a major step up in technique as you "raise" the face before you even start the repousse for all the details (hair, eyes, nose, chin, jaw, horns).
I did head out to NYC a few days before the workshop started so I could do some fun stuff and of course a certain bunny went with me and I was joined by several other C&R friends (Kimberly and Lisa) who were also in the workshop.
On Thursday morning got up and took the ferry from lower Wall Street, across the river to Dumbo, and walked to Val's studio. We were be in the workshop from 10 am until 4pm. Then took the ferry back across the river, dropped our stuff of at our lodgings and then took off to find dinner. This was repeated for 4 more days.
At the end of the workshop I had new friends, some of who I saw in Tucson, and other that I hope to see again soon.
Here is a photo montage I made of my pictures, from the workshop (there is music too).
