I started using polymer clay last year. I found that it was easy to use, and I came up with some fun ideas. One of my favourites is this one. I imagined someone swimming, and I thought about the simplest way to portray it. I used only 4 colours: blue, peach, light grey and dark grey. Swimming is one of my favourite things to do, so I thought, why not just use that as an inspiration? The colours I use here remind me of some of David Hockney's paintings.
