Terrence Robertson-Fall Fine Art

Passion drives us to action.  A passionate person is living life to the fullest, breaking out from the norm and doing something wonderful.  Passion overcomes.  Passion makes you care.  Dreams fuel our passions and direct our energies.  Find your dream and make it happen!

Terrence Robertson-Fall sculpts passionate characters telling rich, animated stories.  They connect us with thoughts and emotions that are important - the love of a mother for a child, a good friend who is always happy to see you, the enjoyment of life. Terrence's art uplifts, brightens, and entertains. It might bring some happiness, bring back a memory of a wonderful time that was forgotten, or lead someone to a new wonderful possibility. 

Balancing detail and form

I am in the process of adding the curly fur to Playbow that is one of the hallmarks of the Cocker Spaniel (the other being the floppy ears).  The curly hair is mainly on the legs and underbelly.  The rest of the hair is sleek and smooth.  I read a post on a sculpture forum where a sculptor was having difficulty maintaining the essence of his sketches in the sculpted shape, and it got me thinking about my conundrum with the hair.  The smooth sleek areas allow the muscle and bone to show the bold strokes of the pose, while the curly hair is full of minute detail that catches the eye.  The curly bits have a great tendency to hide any subtlety in the shape, however.  I really want to keep the form of the back and head plainly visible, as it makes you want to run your hands over the surface, just like petting a real dog.  The trick will be deciding where the blend lines will be, and blending the two areas effectively.
