This particular pose is only going to be two sessions, and I was late to the first one. It’s tough balancing time in the Studio and with the family. This evening was a compromise. Rebuild the living room after having our floors redone (long story), have dinner with the family, and then off to the Studio.
So I drew rather than sculpt.
I actually like to start a new sculpture with a drawing regardless. It slows me down and forces me to look at the composition of the whole before starting to move clay or wax around. It also allows me to make some notes about structure, form and angles. So, these drawings are really a form of visual note-taking rather than to be finished pieces.
