Wood Carvings by Mark Sheridan

Lucy the Squirrel Chaser

This little hound got a few facial features over the weekend.  The colours are a little duller than they will be once a urethane coat is applied…the urethane tends to accentuate the colours and, of course, provides a matte, protective coating to the acrylics.

The real Lucy has a combination of lighter brown, white and some black in her face and I tried to indicate that with a few various washes of colour and some “dabs” of browns and white.

    Mark you sure do know how to put a smile on two people! Me and Doug love it! He said “It looks like Lucy!” Smiling the whole time. He did the same thing when he saw Sky. Great work! I can see a big first place ribbon in your future! 🙂

  2. The biggest part of carving is having people enjoy them…and I’m glad that you and Doug are getting a kick out of this. If the timing is right, I do hope to show the Three Hounds at an upcoming event.

    I don’t mind waiting if you can enter it into a show. It deserves to be seen. Your work is too good not to be shown.

  4. Thanks Cheryl. I’ll enjoy showing it. Mark.
