“Mary- Contemplation”
Work in Progress

I put this one away for a few months so I can see her with fresh eyes. I will start working on it again soon.
I started late last year with the photo of my friend as the model, then I did the drawing to study the pose.
I will simplify the drapery after I complete the face and hands.
Still very early in the process but I think it will look good in various lighting situations. A big part of relief sculpture is creating the illusion of depth with shadows.
