I Love A Great Bust.
For some time, I've been interested in buying anatomically accurate plaster casts of the figure to use for drawing and painting studies. It is nice to work from casts because they are stationary and you can easily control the environment (i.e. lighting, position, studio set-up...). However, they can be equal parts elusive and expensive. When I found this full-size bust at an antique store for $150, I jumped at the opportunity. Hopefully she’ll be making appearances in some artwork soon.
