Had four pieces on the go – keeps me busy whilst waiting for one or other to dry enough for me to work on again. Two Exposures: one torso, one full body; a small experimental porcelain Exposure; and the horse.
I used a ruler a lot when making the four legs, making sure the circumference:height was the same on all four. I became less staunch with the ruler once I reached the body; and it shows. The shoulders and neck deviate from plan quite a bit and are not even. The opening for the interior landscape threw my sense of balance; it was a time when I should have been more careful about measuring when in fact, I forgot about it.
The neck is most probably too small and I’ve flared it out a little to make it a 15cm diameter (although this is still 5cm less than planned in the drawing). Time will tell whether my inattention to detail will cause further problems when starting the head.
