Well, not a whole day on Saturday…but a few hours work, anyway. The real event today was watching “Scrooge” with my son, Paul. Now this is the “real” Scrooge starring Alistair Sims. I’ve been watching this since I was a kid at Christmas and it’s a tradition for Paul and I to watch it as well. Kind of scary and not very Christmas-y really…but it’s tradition!
Here’s the work that I completed today and I’m really enjoying the way that it’s shaping up. As you can see, I’ve started to use and will continue to use sandpaper following the chisel work on this carving to provide a fine and smooth finish to the piece.
