Still refining gal with ball…

Her gesture and balance is reading better, after adjusting her pelvis front and back. This led to a lot of work on the abdomen, ribcage, and shoulder blades etc . To achieve a sense of weight in the ball I have been exposing and hiding musculature, the trick is to show her physical strength and allow her femininity to remain as an equal strength.
Some of the angles feel quiet, that she is in repose with the ball, while at other angles she seems to struggle with it. When moving around the sculpture this dichotomy adds vitality, and she seems animate and vigorous, yet tenuous. It is finally getting near to where I want it. Her face needs more work, as do her arms/hands- but it is close!
