Attended my last sculpture class last friday. So by definition, my portraiture of a young woman is done, although…..
1. There are other members in the class hiring the model to come back so they can finish
2. I could join them at these sessions and they would be glad to have me help pay the model fees
3. I can see lots of problems with the bust, part of that is learning how to see correctly.
But there are many good reasons to do another one
A. it’s going to take me 4-5 busts before I get a really high quality model
B. I probably will learn to see better with more practice
C. I want to be able to sculpt men as well as women
So by definition, my bust is done. Here are the pictures:
Don’t know what I’ll do with this bust. Might make a mold. Might let it dry and crack as a decoration in my art area. Might let it get used as a tool to figure out how to make ceramic busts. Or something else. Since I don’t know, it’s still under plastic at the art studio.
