I’m making up the process as I go. Using photo reference transferred with graphite paper, I set in the deep crevices. Bark is rough, so I have to avoid the temptation to smooth things out. Next I textured the surface with a small u shaped gouge. Now I will come in and create intermediate sized crevices and clean up the two vines. That will be as far as I can go with carving. After that will be painting.
Progress on “Oak”
“…the universe is before our eyes like a beautiful book in which all creatures great and small are a letters to make us ponder the invisible things of God.” Here I want to explore the Two Books: the World around us and the Word within us. I am an artist and a writer, and recently retired from pastoral work. My name is Dave.
