Back in the sculpture studio again :)

I felt so priviledged to be given the opportunity to return to Park Walk studio for a few days to do some work. I dived into a bag of clay and worked on a figure basd on some rough sketches I made a month ago (two top images in this photo).

After day 1, i realised that i needed to return to the source and reference back to the female form. I was returning to the studio the following day so had no time to find a model. I decided instead to use myself! Armed with tripod, digital camera and remote i managed to get enough shots to help me with proportion and structure of the form. I still included some distortion and exaggeration from my original sketches to get the feeling of tension and restraint i wanted to convey.
Im quite pleased with the progress i made over the two days this week.
