Here’s a new wizard carving that I just completed. He’s carved in a piece of Cottonwood bark and measures 12” tall, 3” wide and 2” thick. I enjoy the ease of bark carving, but respect it’s sensitivity :) It’s not too difficult to get a little carried away when carving bark.
This is the face that this wizard makes when the temperate is 16 degrees below zero, as it was here in Southeastern Ohio this morning.
I took a bit of a different approach on the paint for this fella’. I painted the base tone with an acrylic wash, let it dry, and then painted the rest with oil paint. I’d never used oil on acrylic before, but I think it worked out pretty well.
If you have any questions on technique, compliments, or wish to tell me this was an epic failure, feel free to do so :) If I can help you, I’d love to do so! If you can help me, please do! Much love!
