Got back to modelling in the round today and trying to pick up something from Medardo Rosso, particularly his work “Bambino al sole” [see his work now at Galerie Thaddeus Ropac , London]. Think the only similarities are that it’s a baby wrapped up, no eyes modelled, and relies on lighting from above. I’ve used Plaxtin oil-based clay again to see how comfortable I am with the smell and the oil smears on my hands.
The first picture was taken in Jill’s studio and the rest in mine. Plan is to make a mould and then some copies which I would hope to sell.
