Thanks Glenn, but I think I will keep both, carving and woodworking, in the coming weeks I will be posting some of the works I've been doing but didn't dare to post. Wait and see...Looking great Toni. I am so glad you branched out into carving. I think you have really found your woodworking forte. I just love your stuff.
Thanks Bill, although I'd say that it is perseverance rather than patience what is needed, I'm ashamed to admit that I started this one a year ago,Beautiful work, Toni! I can't even imagine the amount of patience it takes for that kind of endeavor.
glad to see my favorite Spaniard is back chipping away you need to stay at it toni.. waiting that long between starts and stops takes away the momentum and the flow of steps needed to complete them..
That is looking great Toni, I noticed your trick photography, neat how they came out at way How much more to go on this?
If the wind is strong enough to blow those away, I'd better hide undergroundToni, keep the carving away from the wind. The leaves might blow away.
Thanks Al, I appreciate your enthusiam and the fact that you like it, but I still have a lot to learn.Creativity & talent by the hand & mind of man. WOW!
Toni, that is not only absolutely beautiful, it's a museum piece! That work of art should be on display for the public & posterity to appreciate what can be done by the hand & mind of man.
Toni, I read tfirst post on this thread and got excited you were on your way back over to us at the states! Then I saw I had already replied so looked at the date . Another masterpiece in the making! Is a miscut easier to hide in this type of carving? Are you going to stain/paint it different colors or leave it natural? Man that is great Toni!
Thaks Leo, but your signs are not far from this, to answer your question I've done some stone carving but it is too noisy and dusty although I like it a lot as well.WOW that in incredible.
I cannot even begin to fathom how much patience that takes. I know you have started and stopped several times and this is 1-1/2 years in the making.
It takes an intense artistic vision to be able to "see" the leave "as" you are carving it. Sure the outside shape is easy - but the contour of the leave, with the gouges in hand while carving away the wood - THAT - is incredible.
I take my hat off and bow to you sir.
THAT - IS - a Truly Amazing work of art.
Do you also to sculpting in other materials?
