Continued refinement and a woodpecker
I use a rake tool to had interest and folds to the woman's dress
This is the man's face. He looks a little too serious, I think I will lighten his expression.
I fill in the areas where the little girls hand and the womans arm meet.
I am using a wood tool to make the little girls fingernails
I've been working on shoes - I'm even doing them in my sleep. The leg is still on the lumpy side. Oil clay is difficult to get a smooth surface. I need to go over the surface several times with a rake tool to get the form right.
This strange looking thing is a wild grape leaf just emerging.
This is a Trillium backlit by the sun
This is a Red Bellied Woodpecker on the feeder at the house. He doesn't look very comfortable, but then those are free sunflower seeds!
