Portraits

In my Heads I am imposing my personality but not a style, I have no definite conceptions of my sitter’s character but concern myself with mapping out the features, cheekbones…….. And by observing, the mental and physiological characteristics impose themselves in the clay.
The ‘rough’ texture I give clay conveys different aspects of a sitter’s character, as texture and light work together in animating the head and continually altering its expression.
