Last Day of Sculpting

This was a great experience, to strip away the skin and get to know a little bit about the bone and the muscles that make up the body. I learned a lot from my teacher Rick Casali. This has just whet my curiosity and I am looking forward to going home to study this more. I will dust off the old "anatomy for artists" books and make some clay studies at home...and sketches...and paintings. I will have to apply what I have learned to my daily paintings. That is the great thing about being an artist...there is always more to learn.


  1. Beautiful work Christine. It's truly amazing to see what can be created with your hands and a little patience. Can't wait to see what blossoms from your lessons.

  2. Thanks, Art. I did learn quite a bit in that class. It was a new way of looking at the human figure and head for painting. I don't think that I will ever look at a face the same way again! I will be checking to see the planes and their tone differences. I am eager to paint portraits with this in mind. Fun!
