Well after seeing how clever you are in finding my whereabouts, ( or how bad I am at giving disorienting hints) here you have what I've been doing in UK.
I went to Chris Pye's place to get some carving training, and I must admit that despite the projects I made there seemed simple, they are not. I've improved my technique and I've learnt several new things.
I guess that all my carvings will benefit from that and the first one to do it will be Rennie's dove.
I had been saving money to do it for quite a while but I think that it's been worth the effort.
Anyway, to make things short, before going there I made these two fish in low and high relief on my own.
