Its been two whole months since I posted. However I haven't been idle. I have been carving and enjoying it so much I haven't wanted to take time away from the knife to get onto the computer.
Well here is the first of a few posts that will follow in quick succession.
The Green Man
Carved from sycamore and coloured with green ink and oak stain Danish oil
I have added the 'sparrows pecking' around the edges, it lifts the carving and adds depth. It takes a while to do and drives the house mad with the hours of tapping.
The eyes I wanted to do something different and added teak pupils rather than adding the details with the knife.
The green man carvings are much more detailed and time consuming but with the addition of the colour it produces a great looking outcome. this too may be a keeper!!!
