This is the first bust I have ever attempted (a lot of firsts for me recently!). I learnt so much about creating texture because I was finding that smooth blends looked very uninteresting on such a large surface. This was a revelation to me, although I am sure not news to many others on this site.

It is definitely an improvement over my last model, and I've started working in some more interesting colours in the shadows. Very excited for my next few projects I am working on now.

I bought a Dremel recently, and you can see my efforts trying to use it on the lovely wooden plinth... lol
