More sculpture

Since my last post I have had three more sculpture lessons. I felt I couldn’t really improve the previous attempt, so I started something new.

It began with a little sketch in wax which has long since been incorporated into the main project — I was very unsure about the exact position of all the limbs, wanting to make something with a delicate balance and a bit of action in it. The lion’s tail sort of followed from the whole attitude.

I think I did make some progress, and I call this toute ensemble “she tripped over the cat”. The weird foot is an accident of using the macro function of my camera: in reality it’s very dainty and well-formed.

Oh, and yes, it is in balance like this: no strings attached.
