Whiskers and first layer of mane are done. Once I finish the eyebrows and eyeballs that’ll be it for the head, save for any fine-tuning.
Happy Canada Day, everyone!
Hope fellow Canadians had a great day off. I enjoyed quality time carving in the garden, and as a result, Trefour’s face is done. Here he is, in all his happy glory.
Just the base left to refine, then final sanding and finishing!
Here’s a carving from Tony Endhoven.
Tony was the featured carver at this year’s Magic in Wood Competition and Show, October 18-19, in Pickering.
Largely self-taught, Tony has been carving seriously for 30 years. Over the years he’s won Best-In-Show awards in Ottawa and Hamilton, as well as in Pickering. Recently, he taught a seminar for the first time, and looks forward to teaching again.
The carvings he put on display in Pickering reflected his broad scope as a carver – everything from caricature, to realistic relief, to carvings in the round.
Members of the Ontario Wood Carvers Association will find an article about Tony and his carvings in the upcoming winter issue.
