        plus this year i made that carving room " man cave" in the basement, plus with being newly retired, and finding that local carving club, i shall not be bored this winter !
        and at the show i found and photo'd so many examples of cottonwood bark carving,, i bought half a bushel of pieces to experiment with soon.

            Denny, like the carvings, but in my opinion (and take that for what it is worth ) The owls are too dark, need more color contrast, and paint the eyes, I know you didn't ask for any comments, but I just would like to see the fine carving shown a little better. Again consider the source.

              i knew i had ought do as you mention , when i was trying to take a picture of it. its too dark to photograph properly, and no sunshine to assist. i have another one cut out ready to carve and that one will go much faster than this one did. i can try a different effect on the next one, if it works out, change this one then. this one i painted one color with brush. not multicolor airbrush.

                  so i went for the makeover slightly, and scraped through the black to the white below, to add a small degree of texture or shading. turned into this. textured.jpg

                    That is better, what about some color variation?

                      i might think up a pale wash to tint the white. my next one will be painted a dirty white with brownish greyish smudges for wotchacallit

                        i guess i first posted this cardinal in the woodburning place, i thought i would woodburn the relief carve. then instead i finished it with new to me watercolor pencil method. after a bit i thougt it looked to brilliant, too gaudy, so i power brushed off the highest highlight and oiled it without repainting. here is an after followed with the before.cardinal after redo.jpg . relief carved cardinal.click to zoom in. cardinal before redo.jpg

                            You know Denny, I a real believer in the all-natural looks, (have been since jr. high) But at time color does really help. Going to have to research the watercolor pencil method, not familiar with it

                              what little i know of it, scrub it onto the wood dry. then brush on water to wake it up. can pre-blend then also befpre wetting. or, touch the pencil tip to a water drop, then apply a small segment.
                              by scrubbing the color off, plenty remained on the wood for a hint of color, suggestive sort of , almost like a wash.
