This bust was a surprise, it was a gift.
I opened and in shock thought I can't do this! I read the names involved and thought oh my god. Then I got over it and thought what a Beast!
That thought stuck in my head and from that the ideas just clicked and I saw everything fit ( I almost fell at the last hurdle but some magnificent friends caught me).
This now is my very best, I hope you see the improvement in my work.
Now I must work harder haha!
This was such an enjoyable piece to paint, the detail/character is exquisite!
There is a little bit of me there too as the palm print is my little finger :)
