Study for "The Perfect Woman"

This was the precursor to my sculpture piece "The Perfect Woman." I wanted to portray the parts of the body that I see most beautiful, the curves and depressions in the shoulders and clavicle, and the curves in the waist. Though this is not proportionally representational, it is recognizable as a female body, and that is what makes it beautiful. 

For my concentration I wished to focus on femininity, and this study epitomizes what I hoped to achieve; the gracefulness a woman should possess, combined with the fragility of nature as found in flowers. It sounds corny, but I think women are like flowers.
