Portrait Sculpture of a Young Labrador Dog

Meet one special original
"Make Me ! ?"
Here we are Basil...the base of the form of the head in place on the supporting armature
Looking a little strange without the ears, but so important to have the correct shape of the  head first....some ears will be made as an early be taken to show Basil at his first sitting for the clay.
We have had a good series of days at Basil's home, watching him and  spending many hours forming his portrait
Back at the studio many more hours work and  the details and then the fine details are  added. The  lovely spring weather meant I could take advantage of the good natural light and warm days!

Basil the Labrador, with his intelligent expression and
  big soft looking ears
