This is my first blog! I have always wanted to learn how to produce bronze sculptures. Several years ago I took my first workshop with Sandy Scott on "Sculpting Birds in Flight". It was a very challenging workshop, but I learned so much. Unfortunately, I never really followed through with completeing anything. I have a nice Owl which was started in the workshop, and everyday that I walk into my studio, it begs for my attention. This past June, I took my second sculpture workshop with Louise Peterson on "Sculpting the Dog". Once again inspired to sculpt, I absorbed so much from Louise and really wanted to get going once I returned home. This is a head study of our Jack Russell Terrier, "Gromit," which I have been working on at a snails pace to finish. I really have struggled with rendering the fur, although I think I am making strides to get to the completion of this piece and venture on to my next. The image included here only shows one side view. I have worked on adding more "mass" to the back of the neck since it had an hour-glass shape. I think now if I smooth out some of the areas of the fur, this piece will be ready. I welcome ALL comments, suggestions, etc.
