I took another woodcarving class. This one is different. Two pieces of bark are glued together and then you carve. When you have it roughed in..you heat the piece up to soften the hot glue and take it apart..do your windows etc..and then glue it together again and finish it up. I know it sounds complicated.
It also helps if you are a person that sees in three dimensions..me not so much.
What do you see??
Well I saw a pine tree and a stone chimney.
Then on the other side a deck and a house.
Right now I am at a stand still with it. The class is over, I missed one day of class because I had to work..but the instructor is available for questions anytime. I am not sure that I enjoy carving on such a large piece of bark. My hand gets tired. I will happily go back to my little houses. This bark came from South Dakota, I picked out the lightest piece he had..heavy wood is harder to carve. Far Guy took the class too..I will show you his creation when it is done. I have no doubt that he will be done way before me:)
