  • Leaning seaman!

    I continue to chip out pieces related to my obsession with ships and the sea. Nothing like messing around in boats! This guy I spied while browsing through a picture site, Pinterest, and I had to give him a go. He's carved in Butternut, and stands about 12" tall. Just some varnish on him right now, but I plan to paint him once I get the grain raised and sanded smooth. I'm having fun with these.

    I like the detail in the ripples in the shirt and pants. Nice touch.

      Looks good Bob. I think the original of this figure was by Dylan Goodson.

          Well done, the detail is spot on, couldn't ask for anything more. Looks **** good with just the varnish

            Hello Robert,

            I really like your sailor. How he stands there, supported by one arm, gives him something alive.

              Excellent job, Bob! Lots of fine detail. I think it looks great unpainted.

                        Well I decided to go ahead and painted him, even though he looked good with just an oil varnish on him. I believe the painted version is better, but that is just my opinion.

                          Looks nice Bob. I agree the paint makes it pop.
