Golden Progress

 

Progress on the golden retriever sculpture is going along great!  New animal subjects are always a learning experience for me, and this one is a joy.  I am using photos from the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study Facebook page for examples.  They are all so unique and yet so similar.  Each one’s personality lights up their whole face, they are beautiful.

Below is a first photo in the process for a seated 9” dog in oil based clay.  By the time I get to the “finished” piece, it will look completely different.  My next step is to take measurements from an actual golden, adjust the structure accordingly and then start working fur and posture.

Stay tuned!
