Fergus received some colour this weekend as did the two piers holding up his observation dock.
The painting is done with acrylic paints. I put on several washes, or light coats of colour so that Fergus’ coat didn’t look too uniform with hard lines where the colouring would have stopped and started.
I also like the way that the piers turned out. Again, several acrylic washes followed by some dry-brush highlighting. I hope that you can see the water line on the piers…I thought that would be a nice touch.
All of the acrylics get a coat of urethane to seal and deepen the colours.
I’m enjoying this carving and will be sad when it’s finished.
Awesome as usual! It reminds me of my faithful beagle,she has some of the ear length that this basset has. I swear pulling/petting those ears is as close to meditation as I’ve ever come. This carving makes me happy….
Thanks Tohner. A fun carving to do. I can understand your point, just carving those big years puts a smile on my face. Mark.
