For myself (and for my dad) the refinement process is the hardest to do and remain focused. When you start a new piece of art work, bronze sculpture or painting, it's loose, it's fresh, it's not set. Once the process begins to unfold, your work becomes more fixed. Additional changes will always happen, but eventually you get to a point when positions, tilts, angles are done. The peice is ready for another stage. Then comes the refinement process. This is the texture, eyes, wrinkles details, details, details and much more. Although absolutely vital for the finished sculpture, it becomes monotonous and at times boring. Only thing to do, keep going....
