Cowled Head - completed

Finished at last. I beeswaxed the sculpture yesterday evening and gave it a final polish today.

The finished colour looks warm and I like the overall effect with the darker parts of the grain looking gently golden too.

She is a piece I find I would love to run my hands over, especially over the cowl. And I have been looking at her with a gentle smile on my face.

Thank you Thole Man. I think that Thumbelina shares some of your talents, it so shows in her photography.

Care from over here, Mickle and my sleeping, snoring Zebbycat.

She certainly does look warm - I love the finish.
Mickle - you are too kind. :)

Yes Mickle, sculpture is very much a tactile form. I remember many years back attending a lecture by Barbara Hepworth no less who spoke of this. Sadly, every time we see a Hepworth in a gallery there is a notice marked "Do not touch". To me that's as absurd as having a painting marked, "Do not look."
It pleases me greatly that you would like to run your hand over the work. Thank you for you kind comments.
Glad you like it too, Thumbelina.
