The reworking of the acorns and twigs went faster than I thought! Took one day to excise the twigs, shape the acorns and checker the caps. Finish carving the twigs went smoothly as did their repositioning and gluing. Onto the ‘Jasper’ carving next. When I come back to this I will be working on the acorns and the last of the leaf areas undone on the sides of the cheeks…..

Back to the Sawcliffe Green man and on a roll. I love doing detail work, so it always seems to go by much quicker. That being said the last two days have been productive, eyes are drawn in and the nose is just about done, along with the brows, which I connected to the large angled leaves. I began working on the very front of the forehead leaf and noticed I still did not like the shape or placement of the acorns, so I decided to take another leap into the learning experience lane.

shaped the acorns a bit more, and have come to agree with some others that they need to be shorter. I also figured out they need to set further down in the carving, the indent in the caps are supposed to fit under the edge of the leaves! Then I went back to the lower facial leaves and worked more depth and detail there…..

started working on the acorns, but something feels off even though my calipers and measurements from the drawing tell me all is correct, and I have some room for error on the nuts.
