STEP 1: After some preliminary sketches to get a feel of what the face wold look like, the sycamore was roughly shaped with large gouges. STEP 3: The Green Woman, in place.

STEP 2: The faces were constantly tweaked and shaped and adjusted as carving continued. STEP 4: The Green Woman, from a different angle.
     
     

PROJECT 3: Hand-carved Corbels

These were commissioned to sit under a mantlepiece. They are carved of sycamore. The faces are my take on the 'Green Man' figure that appears throughout history in various guises, and is a favourite of woodcarvers. However, there is rarely a 'Green Woman'. Seeing as we were doing a couple, it seemed a shame not to buck the trend.

The final pieces were given a light wash of a white pigment, and a good dash of linseed oil.
