Relief on bowl (scroll down for daily progress)
Me being me, I started another ambitious project. As if working in relief wasn’t enough challenge in itself, I have to deal with the roundness of the bowl as well. There will be three girls. Unfortunately the mache is drying fast, hard to do detail or changes comfortably. Interestingly the feet gave me the most trouble because of foreshortening. I’m learning a lot, and that’s a good thing. I’m working entirely from my head, these photos do help to keep proportions in check. I’ll need to make the head of the girl on the right bigger.
Some progress made today. Wet girls heels look funny. Unfortunately I’ve no idea how to correct them. I never thought I would have to deal with foreshortening in sculpture!
Done some detail work today, mostly hair. Probably the most satisfying part so far. I couldn’t take a very good picture in late afternoon.
March 2, more hair, hands and heels detail. Will make more adjustments, nothing major.
