Over a two-day course, the artist will demonstrate the creation of a bust in clay from his imagination. In the process he will explain the knowledge that needs to be retained, from the wide experience of studying and sculpting many heads, in order to create a sculpture without a living model in front of him.
The sculpture will begin with a simple abstract representation of the head, and then proceed with the development of the basic structure of the skull and gesture (pose). The final day will deal with features and expression.
Along the way the artist will discuss the use of a “working theme” as the guiding element for the selective process that takes place.
