New sculpture idea.

Normally I start sculpting - no sketches just sculpt. For example The happy dog sculpture came first then the drawings. I know it sounds backwards and it might be.  Thursday I did some loose sketches of kids standing on their heads and yes! I think they might be a fun series of sculptures. The body types, and endless balancing techniques Or lack there of are interesting, playful and will be  great cast in bronze. 

The inspiration for the series - vintage klement home movies- Curtis, and his sisters  doing headstands for the movie camera. Early 1960's

 

 This is one of many  screen shots I took from Curtis' mom's home movies.

We shall see if sketching before sculpting works for me.
