  • My Dancers progress

    After much pecking and picking . And some new smaller tools, I have been able to get into the closer areas. Whew. And working with this Hard wood has been a challenge . Next time I think? I will be able to have some color going on. Both sides If anyone remembers I did not have a full copy to see what they would look like. I now have his "back" foot off the floor and her "Back" foot almost. The sanding is almost all done? and her face is too. I hope. Comments are most welcome This couple has been driving me nuts for weeks and I call them the Grass Dancers 20220124Grassdanc2.jpg 20220124Grassdanc.jpg

          Hi chuck
          I think you have capture the "spirit" of dance extremely well with piece. The fluid motion of the piece just says it all. Nice concept well executed mate. They look like a couple of professionals doing their thing.Happy carving.

              I have to agree with what has been said so far about the spirit and movement . I think the way you have the guy's chin sticking out is the key to establishing the spirit. You can feel that both dancers are really enjoying themselves. What a great subject to carve. Great job.

                What is the size of your dancers? What kind of wood did you use?

                  They are looking good Chuck. The raised feet give them movement. I can hear the music.

                        I hope you take this as well meant constructive criticism, but some more work defining arms from other arms and bodies, legs from dresses would really add some depth and definition.

                          It's going to be a beautiful piece of art when it's completed.

                            Thanks to all for your comments , and yes, Steev, there is still more to do. I cannot remember why I picked this wood. But it looked so good when I was cutting it out the hand drawn pattern. The start of the idea came from a ceramic piece that was in a box and only one sided. The arms and legs, I have had to guess quite a bit.. Hopefully it will either be finished next month or a hidden part., HAHA . I have other items working too and all in some kind of woods. ?? How did I get into this anyway?

                              The size is almost 5-1/2 " tall total. The wood? I believe it is HARD.. It WAS A STRAY PIECE i HAD IN A PILE AND I DID A CUT WITH A BLADE IT FELT GOOD, Then .

                              and we'll see how it comes out. Thanks for asking.
