an ivory bed for a woman


Recommended Posts

thanks for the progression. It's interesting you start with the eyes and seemingly build the figure around that. With carving, it's the eyes we put in last. There's always that moment where the eyeball is inlaid and it's a moment of truth of whether the figure will become animated or not. It's really the only part of 'additive' work where woodcarving is solely a 'subtactive' venture.

 

If I may, with your renderings the eyes come first and seduce one to develop and explore the form further. Like being caught by an inadvertant glance and wanting to know a woman more deeply (lost in a reverie smiley).

Thank you! you understand what I wanted...

 

I take it you have scribed the lines and used pointalism techniques for the subtle tones and shading.

 

I always use just point, little dot. For the technique of the scrimshaw , there is an very good article here: (with sometimes problems of connection)
