I’m sending this stuff because I’m watching this stuff, and I’m watching this stuff because I want to do this stuff. I’m gonna make some heads in clay! Sounds like fun, and if they work, they’ll be good subjects for drawings and paintings when live models aren’t available.
The wonderful secondary benefit is that studying sculpture will make my paintings better. Physically working information into a 3 dimensional form will help me develop my 2 dimensional paintings. It’s a complementary level of knowledge.
