For anyone who has been blessed with a lab in their life, you realise how wonderfully gentle, soppy, stupid and plain lovely they are.
I love how this model is demonstrative of form without necessarily capturing every detail. The fold technique is odd, but interesting and each time I wrangle the head/shoulders, you get a slightly different aspect, expression and posture – lovely use of a sheet.
I used lithography paper for this, but have also folded it with a piece of double-sided kami, with good results. I think I like the white fold, however sandy/buff would be more demonstrative of the actual dog’s colour.
This is the first, of a series, taken from this wonderful book – some serious challenges ahead – bring it on!
