I was getting ready to scrap this face above yesterday. I’m glad I didn’t because I think I ended up resurrecting the piece during today’s studio session. One of my pet peeves in figurative sculpture is when the form looks too mushy and soft, and lacks tension and structure. I was starting to feel like this piece was all mush yesterday, and lacked a tightness in some muscles that I was looking for. Today I did some subtle subdivision of certain muscles, especially around the brow and tightened up the muscles in the lip area. I think I saved it!
