Clay Sculpture



I took a class on traditional figure sculpture.  The instructor was Alicia Ponzio. Check her work out on the world wide web, it's outstanding.   The class covered basic technique and major anatomical landmarks to consider in the sculpting process. This sculpture is 24" tall and clay.  I had to finish early and didn't get to complete the modeling of all the forms.  The finish is pretty rough, but I like the surface quality like this- also the face is very rudimentary due to time and scale. It was a pretty humbling experience overall- but I loved it.

Paintings



Here are a couple of paintings from recent adventures.  I decided to try more plein-air painting.  The top two are from today- they took about an hour each and are pretty rough. The bottom is a still life fish.  I need to round up more still life that I haven't posted.

Sketchbook updates











Haven't posted in a really long time! Need to sketch more.
