I had given up on this face a few years ago. Even tested some paint on it. Well, I pull it out last weekend and redid it and was pretty glad I did not throw him in the fire.
This guys was fun. I loved the way his hair ended up. I did not plan it this way but some times things are revealed and work out as the art progress.
My amazing daughter came for a visit and took some pics while I worked. Her photography is amazing. (Here’s the link to her website). I love her and her work and she always encourages me in my art.
I’ve had a couple evening free and took advantage by spending some time in the carving shop as well as Saturday carving with another great carver and friend Dean. Spring seems to heighten my desire to carve. Here are a couple pics of what I was working on. I am working on a Native American Chief with a head dress and there will be a lot of feathers on it so I was practicing that. Looking forward to more carving.
I tried to make a guy kind of smirky. I don’t think its very realistic even though it is ok. I want to get into more expressions.
The first couple pics are a Native American I am working on. I will do a head dress and hair tie and/or feather. This was a great piece of Cotton Wood bark from BC Canada.
Looking forward to more time in the shop.
