The idea of creating paintings in wood is fascinating to me, and I am currently just in the stages of copying other artists wood selection for coloring. I want to branch out with some designs of my own, but am really struggling with wood selection.
My main fear is that some woods change color over time, and even when varnish is applied. What looks good during assembly may look terrible once varnished or 3 years down the road. Also what type of wood looks good for a mountain, a tree, a lake etc…. I would rather learn from others experiences than my mistakes.
Can any of you point me to a good reference book or internet site that out lines what woods work best for what color patterns?
