Another Santa finished
I finally got my shed remodeled and found time to paint this old fellow. This from a roughout by Roger Stegall who gave me some tips on improving my carvings, that I am trying to incorporate. When I get advice, I try and take it! He suggested making deeper undercuts to improve the shadow lines, and I have tried to use those techniques in my last few carvings. I am also trying to get better at the dry-brushing technique of painting. I'm trying to use at least three colors to add more depth, like on the beard. I hope to get the other painted in a few days. Thanks for looking!
