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 am working on this green man getting my inspiration from my favorite carver Alec Lacasse. I have never done leaves. I’m taking my time. I feel I have done better on the eyes. I used a pic by Alec and the book by Jeff Phares on eyes. I just got Ron Adamson’s DVD “The Eyes Have It” in the mail today so I am pretty happy about that.
So I love vacation, like everyone. Woodcarving is a part of my vacation. I have committed to studying woodcarving as well as doing it. Reading in detail, Ivan Willock’s book, “Caring Eyes, Features, and Expressions,” and also “Carving Eyes” by Jeff Phares. I am also doing some sketching of these things for great understanding and memorization of the eye and nose structures. My kids got me some sketching things for my birthday. So I did this Sunday night, after services, between packing and taking care of my dad.
