The sitter

For the past few Wednesdays George has made himself available to sit for a portrait sculpting class at the Phoenix Studio - a wonderful space especially with warm winter sunshine pouring through those huge windows and skylights.  I'll let the pictures tell the story of his last sitting and the sculptures the artists created.









From someone (me) who not at all artistic in this way I was much impressed with the results after a total of approximately 15 hours of sculpting.
