Our client contacted us about creating a life size Kunekune pig with a goat playfully perched on his back. It was to be a gift for his father at their Long Island farm. We finalized a design and I procured a sycamore log to begin carving.
Next I roughed out the basic shapes…
From there I moved on to refining the proportions, sanding, and adding texture.
I moved the sculptures from my outdoor carving site to my town studio and oiled them.
Next, we dry brushed the colored markings.
The markings made quite a difference!
