I removed the last of the large area of waste on the convex side of the sculpture today. The fine tuning of the shape begins now. Although very little stone is now being removed the curves want to be running into one another without lumps or hollows. I work over the surface many times with a painted sheet of hardboard. This shows the highpoints which can than be removed. There are still some dips and flat areas that will need further work tomorrow. There was a bitter wind today which swirled around and blew dust everywhere, including into my eyes.
