Torso Sculpture - The Process

Well it’s been a while since I did this sculpture and it is something that I really didn’t gain to much confidence in (sculpture as a whole) but I’ve loaded an image which prompted some questions about it’s process.…

That in itself I think might be quite interesting to some.

So it started with a well know sculpture of a female seated torso. Many of you may be familiar with it but for the life of me I can’t find an image of it for you.
(If anybody knows of it or can find me an image that would be great).

Firstly when faced with a sculpture project I started with quick sketches of the object from different angles.
This helps me consider and remain conscious that I have a three dimensional object with volume.
Here are those preliminary sketches.

From here I constructed the sculpture, here are

Southern Printmakers Association "Earthwriting" is here!!

It’s always exciting when a long coming exhibition comes together and is finally up.
We are very lucky at SPA to have some very talented and celebrated printmakers in our midst, least of which are Ann Baxter, Robyn Waghorn and Laura Stark not to mention the very talented and up and coming Dior Mahnken.…

These artists set a high standard to which all of our members exhibiting live up to and the result is a very professional exhibition.

This exhibition has allowed us to showcase our wonderful history of 30 years and also enabled us to show the public some of the processes involved in printmaking.

If you are able to come and visit the exhibition I guarantee you wont be disappointed!

Here is the invitation once again (details via the link)

News Flash!

This will officially be the last newsletter that I will group Bubblemail out to all our members.
Sending Group bubblemails has become quite an issue where some members on redbubble receive so many that they just delete them on mass.
It is not our intention to annoy our members so although you still will be able to view the weekly newsletter, featured as always next to the featured artist’s work, it will no longer be sent as a bubblemail.

To those of you that appreciate getting the bublemail can I ask you to add your name to a newletter forum and I will bubblemail the newsletter to the individual members who would like it.

The newsletter will also have a hom

First of all apologies for the lack of communication. Unfortunately or fortunately (which ever way you look at it) I now have a job!! Together with the fact that my hard working co-host has also been away has made it difficult to keep things up.

It is however excellent to see so much more prints and printmakers joining the group!!
