My on-line diary began in the 1990's from my studio in the North of England. After a lapse of ten years, I resumed posting from my present studio on the Caribbean island of Dominica.

From the far beginning, the intention has been to give an insight into my working methods, and to share the triumphs, trials and tribulations of work-in-progress.

My diary pages are followed by thousands of artists, art students and art lovers in over 50 countries.

Bringing down the curtain

At today’s modelling session Marcella’s torso quite literally brought down the curtain. The curtain in question being the neutral canvas backdrop that I judge my models against. One gust of from the tropical trade winds and it was gone! But my models are made of tough stuff and I doubt if a hurricane would deter them.

For the sculptor, every bit of the human anatomy poses a challenge. I feel sure that God is saying: So you think it is easy doing what I do. Today’s picture shows work in progress.
