Medium Bronze (edition of 9)
Size 15" (38cm)
This sculpture was one of the most memorable busts I have modelled. Peter Powell was a true character and had a joy of life that was infectious. He sat in my studio over 6 sittings and we talked passionately about art.
Peter Powell was a gifted and prolific water colour painter. His subject was the sea and ships. He told me that his interest in having a bust made was to find out about the process and to learn about the approach a sculptor makes. A very different reason for wanting one's own image.
I remember Peter Powell for his wit and a delightful twinkle in his eye. He asked that I leave finger prints in the clay.
