Thinking : the sculpture (2)

Other view of the sculpture.

It is such a sensual and powerful feeling to pass the hand on that muscular back, to feel the smoothness of patina together with the strength and weight of the bronze.

Thinking : the start

One of my sculpture of a male nude man, who seems to rest and think, was inspired by my mentor Patrick Poivre de la Freta who draw me an outline that you can see below.

Patrick was an incredible artist, and I will write more about him and his work and fabulous life later this year.

I spent a fair amount of time thinking about the sculpture that I would create from that little drawing.
Should I start from the top ? From the face ?
I wanted to express some strength, still in a kind of sleeping or resting mode...
