Jennifleur – working on the surface

Sculpting a portrait is a continuous process of problem-solving or trouble-shooting. It’s not that there is anything ‘wrong’ as such – but in searching for a likeness you are always asking the question ‘what changes would push this portrait towards the end goal?’. Between each sitting I spend time looking at photos to plan what my priorities are for the next sitting. Time with the sitter is precious. I am becoming happier with the structure and face shape, so I am starting to move onto reflecting more surface movements. This is how the muscle and flesh interact with and reflect the underlying skull structure.
