Project Information

This is my first relief carving. I was inspired by the power and motion of a drawing in an old art book. The carving itself is about 3" x 7" and is in a scrap of red alder.

I apologize for the quality of the photography. I have been trying to improve the photos of all of my projects. This relief carving was indeed a challenge. The light source and position make such a dramatic difference, it's very hard to capture the carving detail.

Topamax-
The page is from "The Art of Animal Drawing" by Hultgren (he was a Disney animator). The book is from the '50s. His take on art is inspiring. As you would expect from an animator, it is all about lines of strain and motion.

Thanks. The guy behind the plow looks just like my dad did, but he used mules.

Nice work. Your artistic talent shows. I want to give relief carving a try. Doubt my first effort will be up to this standard.

Even for beginning, you did a great job choosing a good design. That's a solid for any project. Great carving!
