I work across the top of the head along the hairline and down face. I will work on defining the hairline and moving the forehead back.
I have established the hairline and begun to work down the face to define the side of the face.
I have worked down the side of the face and next need to remove stone around the chin. The plaster model is placed outside to aid with carving. I have also further defined the nose. The face is too wide across the cheekbones, I will use calipers to measure the distance across the cheekbones on the model and compare to the stone and carve accordingly. I have also refined the nose.
I cut the hair down in sections to more closely conform to the model. I have also begun to define the chin and carve the hair that curves away from it.
Work begins on the knee...
