I remember being charmed by this clay sculpture of a little girl pulling her hair up when I would spend time at my grandma’s house. She must have remembered how much I liked it because several years ago she gifted it to me so I could enjoy it again.
Today’s block-in of this sculpture went really well! It was fun to sketch and capture the character of the girl. The face gave me some trouble, so I had to erase it out, instead just marked the locations of the features with angled lines.
The next lesson in my online atelier course is to draw a still life of vessels — which will be an exercise in drawing symmetrical forms with ellipses. Slightly intimidating, but it’ll be a great learning experience when I finally dig into it.
