Meet Herrie, the Airedale. He’s a big dog and full of character. Next time I’ll suggest the outline rather than draw it. I’m pleased with it though – well I loved drawing it and that’s the main thing!
Ideas for a bronze – the shape was inspired by the horse’s flayed nostrils I have explored in other sketches. I wanted to capture the bright smooth edges and the sensual, tacktile feel of the tear-drop shapes. This might work well as bronze sculpture.
Bocking near Braintree, Essex: a place full of character and history.
