  • New Relief Project

    Here's a few pictures of my latest project. It's 16in. long by 10 3/4in. wide, one inch thick basswood. I still got a way to go on the roughing out.

      I like how deep you go on your relief carvings. I see the trees but what is the rest of the sceen?

        Hi Dylan, looks like your off to a great start. I like the way you didn't totally outline the margins. Something I keep forgetting to do with my reliefs.
        Will be following along with much interest. Is school out AL. now?

          Dylan I look forward to seeing the finished project. I've been thinking about dipping my toe into the relief well but haven't gotten that brave.

            Whatsthat, what your looking at is one end of the Oakachoy covered bridge. Which was quite a landmark in this area till it burned some years ago. I made the design from a ten year old picture that we took the one time that we went to see it.

            Kathy, I normally end up outlining the border as your can see in this up date picture. I've aways liked the ones that don't have borders and the carving just fades away. But that type is lower then the style that I like to do. Their on year around in this area. I think that their out, don't really know.

            Sue, as long as you keep it simple relief is not really hard to do.

            Thank you all for your comments.

                  Here's today's progress picture. I've pretty much got everything roughed in now.

                  Tarik, thanks. I'm looking forward to seeing how you go about it.

                      You'll have to look a little harder to see todays progress. I worked on undercuting most of the day.

                        I can't see what you did....due to lack of knowledge but it's looking nice so far.

                          Hey Dylan ... just a beautiful start. The undercuts are perfect!!!!! But you know I love shadows.

                          And the complexity of the foreground foliage is going to be spectacular.

                          Now ... I could be very wrong as I do not have the reference photos or drawings you are working with for this relief. I am wondering if your angle on the front lintel to the bridge is correct ??? With a low horizon line, below the middle, and an upward visual angle into the mouth of the bridge I think that you might want to be a bit more square ???

                          Now it could just be the angle of your photo of the carving ... but you might want to put the carving on a shelf at your eye level and check that lintel ... But right now I feel as if the back wall (unseen wall) of the bridge is collapsing.

                              Here's the reference photo that I've been working from Susan. Tell me what you think because I'm not sure I'm following what you're saying. I've drawn in where I would think the horizon line would be. If anything the eve needs to move up.
