Committee visit

The Matthew Flinders memorial committee visited the studio today to check on progress.  The clay statue is unfinished, but most of the parts are in place, so there was plenty to discuss.  Also Charles Miranda and Ella Pellegrini came along to write about and photograph the day.  They are pictured here talking with Deputy Agent General, Matt Johnson.

Draft head

I rough out a head based on the famous painting of Matthew to use as reference.  On the statue, he will be looking down and concentrating and the likeness may well become diluted in favour of getting the mood right.
