Horses 2 + 3 (maybe)

The last two or three days have been productive. I have added the second horse and have started on the third (See Below). These two are in their final shape but need a bunch of fine tuning and personality added. I’ll get to that a little bit later. I should tell you that at this point (and for quite some time to come) the horses are removeable from the base. It would be almost impossible to detail and paint them unless I can work on them separately.

I have also begun work on the third horse. The picture below will show you the armature system and what is on the inside.

You can see that the third horse’s right front leg, and its left rear leg are inserted into drilled holes in the plywood base. If I don’t screw-up and glue the two-part epoxy to the base when I begin to form the legs, sculpture will remain separate until the painting process is complete. (Incidentally, I believe this sculpture will be finished as a Faux Bronze.)

Although I have been pursuing my art in one form or another all of my life, it is still an adventure, and one that I have never tired of.
